Message from Ms. Hasweh, Principal
Good Day PS 59 The Harbor View School Families,
We hope you are doing well and staying healthy. As a school community, a city, a state and a country we have endured so much since March 2020. This morning, I write to you with a heavy heart as I reflect on the events that have occured. We sat behind our screens and watched COVID numbers rise in NYC and across the world. We watched as racial justice protests erupted all across the nation after the murder of George Floyd and other Africian Americans across our nation in recent months and years. Yesterday, we also watched as our capitol building was attacked and our political officials were evacuated for their safety.
I am concerned for us, all of us. Please take time to check in with yourself today and know that we, the Harbor View School family, are here to support each other today and every day. We know our children are watching media sources and hearing the discussions of the adults in their lives and we do not know the effect of all this on them. We are here to help you create spaces for children to share their feelings, to share their perspectives, to ask questions and to feel our love and support.
Please feel reach out to us and let us know of any way that Mr. Randy and Mr. Kyle can support you and your family during these times. This is a disturbing time for many reasons and we want you to know we are here to support our community.
Hanin Hasweh, Principal
