Dear Adaire Community:

Diversity is deeply welcomed in our school community.  We work to support diversity and a culture of inclusion and to ensure that everyone feels safe at our school.  We believe that the expanding diversity of the neighborhood is part of Adaire’s success.

I encourage all members of our school community to do their part to support diversity of all kinds and foster respect for others. In doing so, we will ensure that Adaire is a community that seeks and receives the best from all of us.  I am always available, in person, via email or phone, to discuss this work and support any of our families.


Anna Jenkins
