That being said, the events of the past few days leave me no choice but to speak.
It is one of our core fundamental values as a district that we all have a collective responsibility for all of our students - and that all means all. That is our unwavering belief, and we remain steadfastly committed to ensuring that the Billerica Public Schools are a place where all children are welcome and safe.
This morning, I read a letter from Superintendent Eric Conti to the students of the Burlington Public Schools. Since I would be unable to write anything more eloquently than he did, I share his words below. Please know that these words stand for our students in Billerica as well.
