A Note to the CA Community

[category Upper School, Middle School,

Dear CA Parents and Guardians,

It is important to come together to ease the tension that has divided our CA community. Our hope is to bridge the divisiveness in the community by reaching out to one another and listening to each other’s concerns.

To clear up any misconceptions, The ProCA Coalition and PACA are not the same but are two separate entities. Every parent or guardian is a member of PACA. The same cannot be said of the ProCA Coalition. Whether a parent or guardian chooses to be a part of the Coalition is an individual choice, one that PACA does not influence at all.

We reaffirm PACA’s support of all parents, guardians, students, faculty, and administration. We encourage you to reach out to your child’s teachers to show appreciation for weathering a very difficult school year.

CA is a special place with a strong sense of community. Our children look up to us. We should treat each other with love and empathy.

In Viking Spirit,

Tracie Klinefelter (Lauren ‘22, Alli ‘24)
Joyce Masek (Maria ‘24, Mark ‘28)
2020-21 PACA Co-Presidents
