Statement regarding possible student walkout

It has come to our attention that students across the province have been organizing a student walkout on Friday, March 2nd at 2pm.  The proposed walk-out was initiated by students in other parts of the province and publicized through social media.  Parents should know that the proposed event is in no way organized or sponsored by School District 60.  Classes will continue as per usual on Friday and any students not in class at 2:00 pm will be considered absent and recorded as such.  Administration will make reasonable efforts to dissuade students from walking out.  As this is not a school event, students deciding to walkout will be unsupervised by staff.

It is our hope that parents will discuss the matter with their son or daughter in advance, and that students will make their parents aware of their decision one way or the other.
