    Del Campo Cougars,

    As I shared on October 26th, a disturbing incident was brought to my attention during the prior week where a black baby doll was left hanging in a locker of the girls locker room.

    Our team has spent the last week investigating the incident through interviews of students and staff, as well as reviewing camera footage of those entering or exiting the locker room. The fact that hundreds of students access the locker room daily and that lockers are not assigned to specific individuals complicated our efforts. As of today, we have been unable to determine who specifically hung the doll in the locker but will continue our efforts and encourage anyone with information to come forward.

    Disciplinary actions have been taken with multiple students who had knowledge of this issue, but failed to report it. We have also conducted reviews with staff to ensure any reports in the future are acted on in a prompt manner. Due to confidentiality rules I cannot share more about the actions taken with individual students or staff.

    I want to be clear that we recognize the impact this act had on students and that we must do more to prevent this type of behavior in the future. It is not acceptable to make any individual feel intimidated, harassed or otherwise discriminated against. There are two immediate steps we’re taking.


    First, specific to this incident we are determining how we can better monitor our locker rooms and limit the opportunities for items to be hidden inside of lockers and go undiscovered in closed lockers.

    Second, and more importantly, we are making commitments to expand student voice and engage each other around topics of race and relationships in meaningful ways. A group of Del Campo staff and students has been convened to help lead this work with the support of a team from the district’s office of Equity and Student Achievement and community partners.

    I want to stress that this will not be a short-term or one-time project but an ongoing effort guided by the concerns, opportunities and strengths our conversations uncover. All members of our Del Campo community will be invited to participate and we will update you on our progress. We have already committed to scheduling a school-wide assembly to help start the discussion and are creating additional opportunities for students to share their voices.

    Thank you for being a part of the Del Campo community and working with us to support and celebrate each of our students and staff. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at (916) 971-5650.
