I want her to understand what we're feeling.

After a former student opened fire on high school students and staff in Florida last month, killing 17 and wounding at least 16 more, people across the nation have called for stricter gun control. "Metal detectors are not necessarily the only answers, there has to be other answers", he said. I just wanted to come and say I'm inspired by all of you.

Five minutes before the walkout begins, students will silently leave class and congregate in front of the school with posters against gun violence.

"The objective of the nationwide walkout clearly states that this is to demand that Congress pass legislation (gun control) to help keep schools safe", posted Julie Jones-Kelly on the school's Facebook page.

After we posted earlier this week about planned student gun-control walkouts March 14 at Walton High School, Principal Judy McNeill is telling us that another group of students will be holding a separate event before school on that day.

The National School Walkout is scheduled for March 14 at 10 every American time zone.

The bill now excludes teachers who "exclusively perform classroom duties as classroom teachers" from being allowed to carry guns at school. We ask that parents/guardians and other adults not attempt to participate in these school-based events, since adults joining in would create security risks.

"Our high school students are working on doing some alternative activities in lieu of the national walkout, which will be supported by the school system and school", said Superintendent Jennifer Parish. State testing began for some high school students last week and is to run through mid-May. We are not safe at school.

Rice said in the press release there will be an opt-out process for parents who don't want their children to participate, or for students themselves who don't want to participate.

"We'll have more on that in the future", she said.

Students will neither be encouraged nor discouraged from participating in the walkout, though if they choose to do so, they will receive an unexcused absence for the missed class period.
