Columbine Pupils to Enroll voters in Colorado Prior to walkouts


Junior Kaylee Tyner, who helped organize a walkout at the school on March 14, said the anniversary is a day to remember those lost in the shooting and those they left behind and politicizing it could divide the community.

Sarasota County Schools are not participating in walkouts planned for Friday, April 20.

Students are walking out of schools to protest inaction from lawmakers against gun violence.

The organizer's website called National School Walkout a student movement to protest congressional, state and local "failures to take action to prevent gun violence".

When 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the violence encroached even closer on communities like Hewlett, where many residents knew the victims.

What is the position of the Washoe County School District on this latest planned walkout?

Despite some snarky marijuana-related comments on Twitter, where Russell and other students promoted their walkout, he still is expecting a large turnout Friday.

Similar events will follow in different cities leading up to a final voter registration drive in Parkland ahead of the November midterm election.




That is the day scheduled for the "National School Walkout".

According to LifeSiteNews, during the protest last Wednesday, the "three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) never once mentioned the pro-life walkout during their news shows on the night of the event".

Locally, six Seacoast-area schools plan protests on Friday, including: Spaulding High School in Rochester; Oyster River High School in Durham; Phillips Exeter Academy and Exeter High School, both in Exeter; Winnacunnet High School in Hampton and Berwick Academy in South Berwick.

Some students at Shen are planning a walk-out during school hours, and that district says if they do, they will face the same code of conduct consequences as they would here. They will be excused from class as long as they have a note from a parent or guardian requesting an early dismissal, according to a letter from Penn Hills High School Principal Eric Kostic. "So, sometimes we need to listen to them". The University of Memphis plans to participate in the walkout as well.

His sentiment echoes that of Carroll County Superintendent Stephen Guthrie, who told Brett Hollander on Tuesday he anxious that the discussion of school violence has become overly divisive.

Just days after that shooting, Marion County Superintendent Dr. Heidi Maier announced April 20 would offer students a civic opportunity and student-led activities to openly discuss and safely voice their concerns for school safety in today's world.

"Change happens through patience and this fight does not stop after April 20", Murdock says. Teachers today have seen an entire generation of students come of age under the direct threat of these weapons and practicing active shooter drills. But 16-year-old Rachel Hill and Kaylee Tyner say they grew up in its shadow.

Following district protocol, each school administrator may consider disciplining a student who chooses to walkout without permission to do so.
