National School Walk Out Update
March 14, 2108
At 10 am today approximately 180 students participated in a National School Walk Out.
For safety and security purposes the school designated the gym as the location for students to gather. Also for safety and security purposes, members of the community were not allowed to attend the student organized event.
Students gathered silently for 17 minutes and returned directly to class.
Teachers, administrators and the school resource officer were present to help supervise students, but the school and its employees had an obligation to remain neutral and did not assist in the planning or organizing of any walk out.
I am proud of the way the students conducted themselves today. They were respectful, reflective and considerate of one another. It is my hope that through this experience, students have a greater understanding and appreciation for civic responsibility, the First Amendment and the democracy in which we live.
