Resources for Our Community: On Charlottesville

TPS parents and faculty/staff have been sharing resources that they feel might be useful for families as they confront the racist and anti-Semitic violence in Charlottesville and its aftermath. We invite you to share additional resources ; please send them to communications@tpschool.org (we cannot promise that we will be able to include them all here, but we'll try).
