National School Walkout Day Information
Posted on 03/13/2018
informationAs many of you are already aware, there is a National School Walkout Day planned for Wednesday March 14th. This is a nationwide event that will take place between 10:00 and 10:17 AM to honor the 14 students and 3 adults who were killed in the senseless school shooting in Parkland, Florida last month. You may have heard rumors of students walking out of school during that time and I want to assure you that we have been working with student leaders on how best to support their efforts as well as to keep everyone in the building safe. To that end, we will be closing the campus from 9:45- 10:30 AM on Wednesday 3/14 in order to allow those that would like to participate to be able to go outside from 10:00- 10:17. We will continue to hold classes as normal during this time as no one is required to participate in the walkout. We are thrilled that our student leaders have worked with us to find a viable way for them to be heard without it being a major disruption to the school day. We look forward to the students expressing themselves in an appropriate and safe manner.
