Read the letter sent to families
Dear Beveridge Middle employees and families,
A safe and welcoming environment at Beveridge Middle is always our priority. We care deeply about our students and staff.
This week we received two separate reports of employees potentially using offensive and inappropriate language. In one, a student said he overheard a conversation among staff using inappropriate language. In the other, unrelated situation, a staff member repeated the offensive language while guiding students on the use of good judgment.
In both situations, we acted immediately to investigate. We take this very seriously. We value an open and inclusive community and strive to understand what happened.
Our school shares this message to ensure open communication with our families. Privacy issues limit the information we can offer, but please call the school at 531-299-2280 if you need to speak with our administration.
Thank you for your continued support of Beveridge Middle and Omaha Public Schools.
Tiffany Molina Principal
