Dear Center City Staff, Families, and Friends,
We are saddened by the Trump Administration’s decision to end Temporary Protected Status for about 200,000 people from El Salvador and strongly condemn this action. These Salvadorans were granted their status in 2001 when two earthquakes struck their country causing massive damage. To make them leave after living in this country for well over a decade after many have had children and built strong ties to their communities and workplaces is cruel. There is nothing to be achieved through this action.
We want to let all of our students and families know that we value you and will support you in any way we can. You are an important part of our school community. We will continue to provide safe and inclusive environments for all of our students and value your diverse backgrounds, cultures, and voices.
For more information, please see our pledge to our families.
