A Message From Principal Pete Alvarez:
Dear Rampart Students, Parents, and Guardians,
As you may be aware, a recent inflammatory social media post that does not represent Rampart High School has been circulating within our community. Rampart High School
does not tolerate racism or hate, and all students and staff will continue to be treated with respect.
The past month has presented not only our school community, but also the entire nation with unprecedented challenges, conflict, and polarization. Through this time, I have never lost hope or faith that we can continue working toward a culture of diversity, inclusion, respect, and acceptance of each other as fellow humans to sustain a better future for all.
As we move into summer and wait to see what the return to education this fall looks like, it is more important now, than ever, for all of us to continue fostering, and more importantly improve upon, what makes Rampart High School special and unique.
While there is a multitude of reasons that I am proud to be principal of Rampart, I am most proud that we are a school striving to be about
Every Student Every Day. However, I cannot emphasize this enough, we are not there yet, but we are trying.
Every Student Every Day is our guiding light for how we live and interact with each other; it leaves zero room for hate or racism. After hundreds of years racism, inequality still exists. As the nation continues to grapple and struggle with this reality, Rampart also continues to grapple and struggle to realize what it can, and should be, for all students who walk through the doors of our schoolhouse.
Now is the time for every member of the Rampart community to become part of the solution and work to eradicate racism through our actions, media posts, and dialogues with each other. Regardless of how we return to education this fall, we will not only commit to providing the best education possible, but we will also commit to providing the best environment for
Every Student Every Day.
We cannot lose faith. We cannot falter. Together, and only together, we will create a culture of diversity, inclusion, respect, and acceptance; a truly better future for all.
Principal, Rampart High School
