The Brown's Letter to the Board of Trustees

Dear Karen and Board of Trustees,

      We are writing to express our concerns regarding the recent departure of Bear Capron.

      As you are no doubt aware, this has been extremely upsetting for many of the girls and very frustrating for those of us who value Bear's contribution to the school. While we understand the difficulties involved in these situations, the lack of transparency and apparent arbitrariness of the process makes us very concerned for the future culture of Castilleja. Given the commitment to the mission of compassion and diversity we are disappointed that such a valued and long serving member of staff should be removed in such a way. We strongly suggest that this situation be reviewed and every attempt made to repair the damage done to the spirit of the school. We would hope that Mr. Capron be reinstated in order to continue his remarkable contribution to the education of Castilleja students.

Yours most sincerely,
Tim and Gaynor Brown
