Letters to the Editor

We welcome your insights and opinions, and as a public forum, encourage readers to write letters to the editor, more informally seen as responses to the content of The Oracle. They can be curiosities, criticisms or compliments to something we published.

Letters to the Editor will be labeled as such, and published in our Opinion section, at the discretion of student editors, who have full editorial oversight over what is published on our website and in our newspaper. We have the right and responsibility to edit or condense for brevity and clarity, and will let the writer know prior to publishing what changed. We do not permit libel or written defamation of any kind. We will consider submissions from anyone within our community: students, staff members, administrators, parents and community partners. Please submit your writing in an email to [email protected].

Please keep your letters to the editor under 300 words and include your name, contact information and connection to the school, since those will be published as well.
