Statement on Racial Justice

June 1, 2020

Dear Malden Public Schools Community

This past week has been a very difficult and violent week in our country. We are deeply saddened, disturbed and outraged by the death of George Floyd. We grieve with his family, his friends, and his community as they try to make sense out of his brutal, indefensible death. Horrible and blatant acts of racism have marked this Spring across America. There must be meaningful dialogue and action to address this by all of us.

The Malden Public Schools is committed to advocating for and promoting racial justice. We stand united with our students, staff and leaders in the fight against systemic injustice and inequality.

John Oteri
