National School Walkout on Wednesday, March 14.
Students all over the country are planning to walk out of class for 17 minutes in memory of the 17 lives lost during the shooting at Douglas High School.
Some Schools who will participate:
“Avon: They will be doing a peaceful assembly at 10 a.m. for students wishing to participate.
Carmel: They will have a ceremony in the fieldhouse that will involve reading the names of Florida victims.
Indianapolis Public Schools: Five high schools, and even some middle schools and elementary schools, are planning demonstrations. For the most part, students will not leave campus. Instead, they will head to designated safe area on campus and be supervised by staff. Ferebee says he’s proud of students for organizing the demonstration, and he has been talking to his student advisory board about it.
Muncie: Students who choose to participate in the walkout will gather at 10 a.m. in the student center and then proceed to the football stadium where speakers, including Sheriff Ray Dudley, will discuss topics related to gun violence and the law. Students will return to class after 17 minutes with their absence excused. Students who choose not to participate will carry on with their usual morning activities.
Noblesville: They will have a vigil at 6:45 a.m.; a moment of silence at 7:35 a.m.; a video shown at 10 a.m.; and discussions at lunch. There will also be a special art display honoring victims of school shootings.
Perry Township: Southport High School and Perry Meridian will have a brief assembly. Students can walkout if approved by a parent.”
