The shouts heard 'round the world as student activists protest gun violence

"They were very open to hearing student opinions", Patterson said. "This investigation is still in the early stages and it's too premature to call it a suicide". These groups have caused and are still causing change.

Watkins said that safety of all students would be a top priority and that no student should feel compelled to participate in the walk.

La Salle-Peru Township High School superintendent Steve Wrobleski said he had some students who wanted to participate and they are doing what they can to help the students do it safely. No other students were endangered. But some of their schools aren't exactly supportive.

Classes were canceled for the day at a high school after a student killed himself in a restroom Monday morning, authorities said.

That's intentional, the students said: They don't want to take a stance for or against gun control.

DE 105.9's Rob Petree reached out to other school districts in Sussex County who have yet to respond with an official statement as to what they plan to do regarding the protest. The schools will find a way to cover staff members who might want to take part, he said. Riverview eventually reversed its decision and allowed students to ride the bus.

If the Browns take a quarterback first overall, I would be pretty shocked if the Giants passed on Barkley at number two overall. What would you do to draft Saquon Barkley? I have so much room to grow. "Obviously that's not the case".

"No one should have to go to school in fear", the organizers wrote in a letter distributed to school staff last week. At 10 a.m. March 14, Elyria High School students will gather in front of the Washington building.

"After that statement, our RSVPs skyrocketed", Carlomagno said.

Some principals have issued permission forms for parents to fill out, while others have warned that disciplinary action could be taken if students choose to walk out. I wonder what is the difference between the two protests? "There is always more we can do, always opportunities to practice protocols and make sure everyone is following the rules". They are the evil stepmother stifling the princess's potential.

Walla Walla Public Schools Superintendent Wade Smith says more students at Wa-Hi seem to be eyeing another organized protest day (March 24), but there is still some interest in the March 14 date, which is why the district is sending out the statement to parents.

Even if high schools may not be supporting their students, colleges nationwide are.

Students in schools across the country have been walking out to protest gun violence since the Parkland shooting, with varying levels of consequences.
