School Districts Make Plans For National Walkout On Wednesday

Wednesday will mark one month since the Parkland, Florida, school shooting that left 17 people dead.

On March 14, thousands of students are planning to walk out of their classrooms for a nationwide demonstration.  This includes several schools in KELOLAND.

We reached out to every district in our viewing area to see what their policies will be for students on Wednesday; so far we have received 16 responses.  Here are a few of them:

Great Plains Lutheran High School says it will use the day to discuss school safety and seek comfort from God's work and spend time in prayer.

 At Fulda Public Schools, the principal says as long as student action is safe and school appropriate, they will not be punished for walking out.

At Beresford, staff are adjusting the school schedule so students who do take part in the walkout can do so without missing instructional time. Students can use the courtyard and gym for the event.

 And at the Gayville-Volin School District, the Superintendent says while the school respects student's rights, they will follow attendance policies and procedures.
