Message Regarding Recent Events in New Zealand

Dear Albany High School community,

We are sadden by the recent events in New Zealand and our hearts and healing thoughts are with the victims, families and community during this difficult time. Hate acts and violence such as this can be countered with compassion and by promoting an understanding of empathy, social justice and efforts towards global acceptance for all people, faiths and beliefs. AHS has counselors should students need additional support during this time. For more information on talking to students about these issues, please visit the following link:

Take care,
