COMMUNITY EXPECTATIONS

As a reminder, an unfortunate aspect of the unfolding COVID-19 news is report of increased discrimination against members of the Asian community. Hearing of such circumstances, we are reminded of and grateful for the fact that mutual respect is one of the hallmarks of the Kingsley community. While many of us may be experiencing unease and uncertainty as the novel coronavirus permeates the headlines, we are confident that our shared commitment to mutual respect will carry us through. Still, we want to underscore that any discrimination or disparagement of members of our Asian community will not be tolerated and will be viewed as fundamentally inconsistent with our commitment to mutual respect.
