June 1 marks the start to International Pride Month, a month to recognize lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, Two-Spirit, intersex and asexual (LGBTQ2IA+) persons, and all the things they bring to our communities to make them vibrant.

Recognition under the law, and a month to celebrate LGBTQ2IA+ communities, was a hard-fought battle by these groups.  We now pause to recognize their struggle and the continued discrimination that LGBTQ2IA+ face.

Coast Mountains Scho0l Distrist 82 must ensure that as a school community, we put the interests of our community first and ensure that everyone, no matter their race, religion or sexual orientation or identity, are treated with respect and dignity and that we model the behaviours we want our students to learn.  In School District 82, we will continue to work as an organization to develop and implement our inclusion, equity, diversity and anti-racism plans.  It is our job to take care of all children … to ensure that all students, regardless of their sex, race, religion, culture, sexual orientation and gender identity or expression, enjoy a safe, inclusive and welcoming learning environment.
