Principal Mason has worked closely with students to organize a safe and impactful school-wide walkout. The students will honor the 17 victims of the Parkland shooting by walking out and standing together for 17 minutes.
More from the district: We support student’s rights to self-expression and awareness of social issues,' superintendent Dr. William Hite wrote in a letter to principals. 'Please remind students to be respectful of students on campus who may not wish to participate, and/or students who may hold opposing views to those shared during the event.' Through a directive from Hite, the School District is asking all principals to designate 'safe areas' for participating students to walk out to. 'As a reminder, should students choose to walk-out, discipline should not be imposed,' Hite said in his letter. 'Students participating in the walk-out are expected to re-enter the building and the school should resume normal activities following the walk-out. This is for the safety and protection of all including those remaining in the school and to reduce building disruptions.
