Kzoo schools to honor victims of FL school shooting

Kzoo schools to honor victims of FL school shooting

It is 17 minutes to remember 17 lives snuffed out in Florida - and to demand safety from gun violence here at home. This is a national, student-powered initiative, meant to spark action to keep our schools and our communities safe from gun violence.

"It really made me realize the power we have, as students, and the ways that we can change a community", Vaughan said. Whether it's voice in support of gun rights, or a voice in support of the kids in Florida who were killed, or just school violence in general.

"We're going to raise our voices".

But legal experts have previously said the Broward County Sheriff's Office could be sued over the failure of one of its deputies to enter the high school during the shooting and that plaintiffs might be able to overcome the immunity standard.

"When I first brought this up, the number of students who wanted to participate was awesome", DeVoy said.

"I'm thankful they came to the game", Wade told the Sun Sentinel newspaper.

A nationwide school walkout to end gun violence is planned for March 14 to honor those killed in the Parkland Florida school massacre.

In an interview with East Cobb News, McNeill said several of the students who met with her last week, including some in Walton's current senior class, will be commemorating the 17 victims of the Parkland, Fla., high school shooting before the school day next Wednesday, as she had suggested. While the district and its staff are not to take a stance on the issue, Bouck said it is important to protect the students rights to free speech. As long as things remain peaceful, Parker said, the walkout will be permitted.

"When I walk out it will be to say enough". "I sincerely regret that my exuberance has caused such turmoil. While it is an unfortunate cause, it needs to be heard".

Port Townsend High School Principal Carrie Ehrhardt was not available for comment Monday. But discussions are under way with student organizers. "We wanted to be proactive and inform our families and staff about what our plan is, . about how we'll manage these kinds of events. We want Congress to pay attention", the website said.

"Lafayette Parish administrators recognize the significance of the National School Walkout, scheduled for March 14, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Students in all schools will be allowed to participate peacefully in the 17-minute walkout without fear of disciplinary consequences".

John Marshall Principal Aspasia Carlson said she supported the effort by students.

White noted that Williams Bay police would be invited to be present during any walkout.

He added: "It's a sign of respect for those who died in a horrific act".

The Muscogee County School District has developed sit-ins as an alternate activity for The National School Walkout Day. "We also recognize that some students may not want to participate in a walkout and would prefer to stay in class". Students will be informed that they are not to leave school grounds. "By supporting the organization, we keep it a safe event". Though she was there to hold "listening session", many students-and reporters-felt she did anything but listen, and they left the meeting feeling, in so many words, unimpressed.
