Majority of Teens, Parents Worry About New School Shootings

Majority of Teens, Parents Worry About New School Shootings

Junior Kaylee Tyner, who helped organize a walkout at the school on March 14, said the anniversary is a day to remember those lost in the shooting and those they left behind and politicizing it could divide the community.

Students at Southmoreland High School also are working to plan additional school safety awareness events, said sophomore Olivia Robertucci, who helped plan the school's March 14 walkout.

Since the shooting, students from the Parkland, Florida, school anchored a massive rally against gun violence in Washington on March 24, and throngs of young people took part in sister marches around the country.

Organized by students, the national walkout has three goals: hold elected officials accountable, generate solutions to gun violence, and to engage students in the political process. CBS anchor Jeff Glor characterized the protest as "walkouts across the country". Nothing will happen if C.T. English teachers and administrators do not participate in Friday's walkout, but if any do Becker said he'll consider filing a lawsuit to stop any future participation. That event will involve a meet-and-greet with legislators, student speeches, music and on-site voter registration.

Friday is a national day of walkout for gun reform. Now, they'll be getting another shot at it. Chris Petley, spokesman for the district, says it is permitting its students to participate in the 10 a.m. walkout, which will last about 20 minutes.

We empathize in the national concern over school safety and we continue to work to prevent a tragedy like the one in Florida-and to ensure our staff and students are prepared for any type of emergency that might occur at our schools.

Originally, the event was going to be scheduled during a transition time, which is when students change class.

"We get hate comments online all the time because we're angering people, and we're angering people because we're scaring them, and if we're scaring them it's because we're doing something", she says. Students plan to participate in community service for the remainder of day, according to the Twitter post.

For example, the fear of school shootings is particularly pronounced for students of color. A group of Downers Grove North High School students is expected to walk out of school April 20 to commemorate the anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre.

Most schools don't anticipate a need for additional law enforcement presence, Wait said. Teachers today have seen an entire generation of students come of age under the direct threat of these weapons and practicing active shooter drills. The shooting was the nation's deadliest since a gunman attacked an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, over five years ago. Please feel free to contact any of our High School Principals and they can share more specific details of the student created activities. "Eighteen and older is the way we do it, in this country", said Dr. Perry.

"While we are aware there may be some students interested in showing remembrance for the events that happened at Columbine High School, for us the day is the same as any other instructional day", he said.
