Local students to join National School Walkout, set for Friday

Brighton High School students plan to walk out

Oakwood High School Sophomore Sammy Caruso says the National School Walkout events will also commemorate the 13 victims of the 1999 Columbine High School shooting, which occurred before numerous Dayton student organizers were born.

Students across the country have organized events nationally since the February 14 school massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead.

High schools in central Virginia are getting ready for students to walk out of class tomorrow to protest gun violence as part nationwide event.

The National School Walkout has a list of schools where walkouts are planned.

The movement's goals, the website states, are to hold elected officials accountable, promote solutions to gun violence and demystify and engage students in the political system. In March, many of our school sites had students who organized walkouts and walk-ins, and those demonstrations occurred in a peaceful and respectful manner.

Holly Blastic of Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America, which supports Students Demand Action, said she was invited to talk. Some Columbine students are planning a compromise by holding a combined vigil and voter registration rally on Thursday night.

Students for Change also will host a community rally at 4:30 p.m. Friday, starting at Washington Elementary School. "If students leave campus without permission, they will be disciplined accordingly".

"Everyone at State High is a post-Columbine kid, so we've known our entire lives that every day we go to school something could happen", Yurman said. "Our administrators are working with those students to ensure that they do not cause a disruption during the day", Petley said.

He says organizers are also hoping Friday's rally will inspire more young people to get involved in politics.

In a statement with ABC, one of Murdock's co-organizers, Grant Yuan, a 17-year-old junior, said that many schools have shown acceptance to the walkout.

In a letter addressed to students and families, Austin Independent School District Superintendent Paul Cruz said although he believes finding a voice is an essential part of students' lives, it is important to address expectations and safety surrounding these kinds of protests. "Student safety always remains our top priority".

This latest national rally comes more than a month after tens of thousands of USA students from more than 3,000 schools participated in the #ENOUGH National School Walkout to demand that lawmakers seek tighter gun control regulations.

Many students, Basilone said, used the walkout as an opportunity to miss class.
