Wounded Parkland student plans to sue school district and sheriff's office

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy De Vos was in Parkland to visit Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School

National School Walkout encourages students, teachers, school administrators, allies and parents to participate.

"The welfare of our students is our No. 1 priority", the letter states. Baldridge referenced the school officer in Florida, whose actions during the shooting there are contested - the officer has contended he followed correct protocol because he believed gunshots were happening outside based on what he heard on his police radio, national news outlets reported.

Organized by administrators, students and staff at Kent County Middle School and Kent County High School who chose to participate in the walk-out stood outside for 17 minutes starting at 8:40 a.m.to pay their respects for the 17 students and staff of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School killed February 14. It is important that when we refer to gun violence, we do not overlook the impact of police brutality and militarized policing or see police in schools as a solution. We need a multifaceted solution that addresses all of the issues that the Parkland students are now so eloquently articulating as a result of witnessing the horrific shooting and losing classmates and teachers to gun violence. Along with the typical emergency drills the school staff and students participate in, she said school staff will participate in active shooter drills at night with local police officers to prepare them for the worst-case scenario.

The walkout will be a point for discussion at Tuesday's monthly district-wide principal meeting.

"We are doing it to remember the students that didn't make it out of the school", said 11th-grader Mary Cate Parent.

"We are planning on supporting the students for a 17-minute demonstration", he said. Contrary to your email, our staff will not be participating in the walkout.

Wounded Parkland student plans to sue school district and sheriff's office

Next Wednesday, students from Central and Centennial are expected to leave at 10 am. District administration will be outside to supervise the students, according to Sutton. "While I respect differing opinions, I argue that the best way to honor the victims is to ensure that a shooting like this will never happen again, and to push for gun reform legislation which ensures that".

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

The girls plan to have 254 pinwheels around the high school entrance for the Walkout event on the 14th, signifying the 254 individuals who have been killed in school shootings since Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999, and a few speeches during the 17 minutes as well.

"It is during the school day, so the normal educational day will go on", Sutton said.

Peterson has since resigned from the sheriff's office.

When we walk back in, we can step up to a role where we are choosing to measure ourselves not only by the academic and athletic achievements of students who already feel successful, but also by the extent to which all students turn school into a source of meaning and vitality. Statutes governing compulsory school attendance allow for parents or guardians to write a note for an excused absence for activities or other reasons where students aren't present for classes.
