Hi all,

Trying to help a parent organize for the 17 minute march on March 14. What are your schools doing for it.

Our school district isn't in session that day. Our high school is in the state basketball finals. No walkout for us.

We have one "secondary campus" for 7-12. The district has communicated expectations for the day. So far, all the talk about it has been at the secondary level. My principal has asked that we notify her right away if we hear any talk from our elementary kids about participating so we can all be on the same page. As far as I know, no one's said/heard anything.

If the entire class walks out, the teacher is to go out and help supervise. If some students stay behind, the teacher is to stay with them and supervise inside. There will also be a police presence to help supervise.

Students who participate within the set parameters (i.e., the 17 minutes) and act appropriately will not be given any consequences for walking out. If teachers wish to be a participant, they need to take a personal day. Apparently there is also something about wearing orange, and the district advised teachers to do that as a way to "get involved" if they wanted to.

There is also something in the works for April 20th (I'm not sure if that's just my state- we're in CO and that's also the anniversary of Columbine). The district communication said that our union would be partnering with several other organizations to participate in this and that we would receive further communication about how staff/students will be involved. I'm very curious as to what that will look like!

At our school, we were told we had to remain "neutral".

Having said that, at 8:00 a.m., some staff will gather and walk the track for 17 minutes. That is before school hours.
