Dear Brewster Community,

We apologize for running out of time at last night’s Town Hall Meeting thus depriving you of an
opportunity to have your questions answered. This was not our intent. We didn’t want to delay
having the meeting after school started because we knew that the community had an interest in
discussing these two issues. Both the video and the logo are clearly important to the community
and we want to make sure that we give you an opportunity to be heard.

A number of people signed a roster indicating their interest in serving on a Task Force on how
to strengthen and unite the community. I have contacted this group to meet so that we can
establish two more town hall meetings to give the community sufficient time to ask questions,
get answers to your questions, share your ideas and make recommendations. One meeting will
be dedicated to the issue of the disturbing video made by four of our recent graduates. The
other meeting will be dedicated to those of you who wish to talk about the logo. During the
regular Board of Education meeting last night, we assured the audience that we would suspend
any further decisions about the logo until the Task Force assembles and determines its next
steps.

The Task Force is scheduled to meet next Monday. After it meets, a notice will be sent to you
announcing the dates and times of these two new Town Hall Meetings. The Task Force
members will determine a time that is more convenient to maximize attendance.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
Warmly,
Valerie Henning-Piedmonte
