School district officials say planned walkout 'poses a safety threat'

"This letter was created from the words and hearts of HHS students".

That shooting has sparked calls for state and federal lawmakers to increase gun safety, with some of the most outspoken activists being students who survived the killings in Parkland.

The letter said that Gauen met last week with her Principal's Advisory Committee, a group made of senior leaders who communicate the student's needs to the administration. Winter said, referring to the Valentine's Day shooting in Florida.

In schools around the country kids have begun to speak out about the need for gun control.

Kent County Middle School Principal Mary Helen Spiri sent a notice home announcing the planned event at her school. They're going to walk out of class for 17 minutes, in solidarity with the victims of Parkland, Florida's school shooting.

As the discussion continued, the district held a faculty meeting to make plans for the day. It is also important for students to remember that disruptive "walkouts" are against district policy, and any student led demonstrations that have not received prior approval will result in disciplinary consequences.

"Obviously, this amendment (to exclude some staff members from being allowed to be armed) is a step in the right direction", she said.

As the court held in an earlier decision finding that students can not be obligated to salute the flag, students' speech rights must be "scrupulously" protected if we are to have any hope of "educating the young for citizenship" and teaching students not to "discount important principles of our government as mere platitudes". Seeds of Peace brings youth from different countries together to foster understanding and help resolve global conflicts.

"If any New Canaan High School students choose to participate, we will work with staff and students to ensure the event is well-organized, safe and is as minimally disruptive to teaching and learning as possible", Egan wrote to the families.

In other matters Wednesday, the board will hear presentations of proposed 2018-19 budgets for technology, school board, central office and special services. But, she acknowledged students may participate in both the forum and the walkout.

"In light of what happened, I wanted him to come back out again", Ms.

The district has asked that the walkout not to be a political event, with no signs or posters.

Marchers will begin walking out at 10 a.m.to arrive downtown at the City Plaza at 11:30 a.m., according to an emailed release from the Chico Walkout and March Committee.

Virginia Beach Schools went with what's on the books.

Peterson has since resigned from the sheriff's office.
