The Anti-Defamation League is celebrating the efforts that schools across the country are making to promote diversity, inclusion, and allyship through a nationwide viral campaign #noplaceforhate.

On Thursday, May 21st, Amity Regional School District No. 5 will be participating in this campaign by creating a post featuring one thing that has been accomplished in this area.

Amity is committed to fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion. At this uncertain time, it is even more important to celebrate these efforts.

Principal Anna Mahon would be happy to talk with you about the work the school has been engaged in with creating a positive and inclusive school culture.

Letter: Amity Administrators, Clergy, Community Leaders Discuss Anti-Semitism, Intolerance

Dear Amity Community,

On Wednesday, November 14, a very productive meeting was conducted with the Amity High School Administration, leaders from local organizations and clergy to discuss the school and community’s response to the incidents of Anti-Semitism and other intolerant behavior in the school community.

This type of behavior is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. The high school administrators have spent the last few days working with students in small and large groups along with meeting with the faculty and representatives from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to listen and develop an action plan.

During yesterday’s meeting, there was a strong commitment to continue to work together to keep the community informed of the school’s response and action plan. We will know more about the plan to address the issues we are facing by November 30, at which time it will be shared with the community. Our priority is to make Amity a safe and supportive environment for all students. The following people are resources for you to contact for support or with questions:
