ICSD Community Letter - November 12, 2021

Dear Ithaca School District Community,

While it has been a difficult week, we remain grateful for the opportunity to share time with students and families in our school buildings. Your collaboration and patience have been appreciated, and we will continue to prioritize the safety and well-being of our school community. 

I also wish to update you on the incident involving one of our school buses this week. At this time, the preliminary review of the incident confirms a bus was hit by a projectile. The Ithaca Police Department has shared that the case is still under investigation. We are in direct conversation with law enforcement agencies and we will provide more information as it becomes available. 

My administrative team and I also continue to work with mental health organizations, community leaders, and others to provide support and proactively plan for the physical and mental safety of all. Please continue to report any concerns to your building principal and/or another administrator in your school. 

Contact information may be found here on our school district website.

Regards, 

Luvelle Brown
Superintendent
