Dear LOSD families, staff, and community members,
Over the weekend, Mr. Kevin Mills sent his letter to the community about his DUI arrest Friday night. I want the community to know that this is very disappointing and unacceptable behavior for any of our employees, especially when it involves one of our principals. I take this very seriously. Since Mr. Mill’s email to his community, I have received a number of responses, and many have provided me with advice as to my next steps. As always, I value and appreciate parental input and suggestions. With that said, we need to take time for self-reflection and discussions with our children and families so we can collectively learn from this mistake. This is a part of restoring trust, but also providing space for our grace and kindness toward the individual who transgressed.
Please understand, this is a personnel issue and no further comment will be made.
Dr. Michael Musick
