WEST SACRAMENTO—The Washington Unified School District (WUSD) today issued a statement regarding the President’s decision to suspend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that protects undocumented children of immigrants from deportation.
This recent decision is a cause for concern creating a multitude of emotional responses from our students and families uncertain of the impact this will have in their lives.
Our schools always have been and will continue to be the cornerstone of our community providing our hard-working families the opportunity to pursue their dreams of a successful future.
The Washington Unified School District together with countless other local and statewide agencies will continue to support and protect ALL students regardless of their immigration status upholding our
Safe Haven Resolution
approved by the Board of Trustees on February 16, 2017.
We are fully committed to supporting our families with any concerns for their future.
Each school has a support system and staff in place to help our students with any anxiety or fear. Each school is staffed with a part-time Social Worker and Outreach Specialists in addition to our teachers, campus safety monitors, support staff and administration. Please talk to your children about the safety and support staff available at school. Our employees stand ready to support and help.
