New!  Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Resources and Education

The Duffy Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee stands firmly with our Duffy Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) students, families, and staff. We would like to share the following resources and education for all of our community members. It is incumbent on all of us to ensure that we work to ensure that discrimination and violence against AAPI, or any member of a marginalized group, is not tolerated now or into future generations. As caregivers, we all have the privilege of teaching the children in our lives by educating them and ourselves, and leading by our actions. Click here for the complete list of  resources.


For more information on the EDI committee, please contact co-chairs Tracy Wu Fastenberg or Heidi Hojnicki.

New!  Mask Donations
While the school system provides daily disposable masks to students in need of them, many find the cloth options more comfortable. We held a mask drive in the fall, which our Duffy families so generously contributed to, and our school is in need of additional masks for this spring.
If you’d like to donate to the mask drive, we are accepting Venmo donations to purchase them in bulk.  Any amount helps! Donations can be made via Venmo (please note “Duffy masks” in the text area): @Jennifer-OConnell-43540
