A Day Without Immigrants - Suggestion for School Policy

Dr. Schuler is waiting to review an Executive Order the President has indicated he will be signing next week before sending out correspondence on the issue of deportation and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

He states, "Our students deserve to be safe in our schools. Several years ago, I directed our buildings to not let ICE come into the buildings without a court order. It would be my intent for that to continue."
