Message From Our Executive Director reguarding the tragic events on Monday, Oct. 24, 2022 at the Central Visual and Performing Arts High School

Message From Our Executive Director

The tragedy of yet another school shooting entered our community this week with the tragic events on Monday, Oct. 24th at the Central Visual and Performing Arts High School. These high school students, teachers and CVPA staff and their families will need time to mourn and heal, and we send them all of our love and care at such a difficult moment of senseless violence. My overall sentiment today is that nobody should be afraid to go to school and that no, this is not ok. The arts are powerful and provide an important avenue of self-expression and I encourage all those students at CVPA and beyond to continue to share their voices through meaningful and peaceful forms of expression. May our community heal.
