Vail Daily letter: Time to unite
November 27, 2016
In his recent letter to the Eagle County Schools community, Superintendent Dr. Jason Glass speaks about the "increased instances of bullying and discriminatory behavior in schools across the nation since the election." He also reiterates a "commitment to protect all students from discrimination and harassment" here in Eagle County.
We at Ute Springs Experiential Learning Center commend Dr. Glass for his leadership and commitment to create an environment of equity and tolerance for all students. The mission of Ute Springs Experiential Learning Center is to increase social and emotional skills and behaviors in all participants. Children in our programs learn to treat each other with compassion and understanding while adventuring in the great outdoors. Our staff is trained and dedicated to prevent bullying in all forms, at all times. We encourage members of our community to engage in Ute Springs Experiential Learning Center programs and camps, as well as in other kindness based programs in our valley.
As we teach our children, we encourage all members of our community to learn about the many valuable children's, youth and community resources available in Eagle County surrounding bully prevention and equity. Our community will grow in support, understanding and tolerance while we unite to make a difference.
