SLHS Walkout Today



Dear Seahawk Families,

About 350 of our students walked out at noon today in honor of the 17 victims from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.  Students exited through door #1 and reentered the building in an orderly fashion.  Staff were present to ensure student safety. The students were outside for 17 minutes before returning to class and/or lunch.  I am proud of how the students conducted themselves including a moment of silence that was very moving.

FCPS respects the rights of our students to engage in peaceful protest and express their opinions through speech and other ways as long as it is done respectfully, does not interfere with the rights of others, and does not disrupt learning in the school.   Our school is committed to providing an environment where everyone is treated with respect and encouraged to help others.  

Our teachers, administrators and staff continue to reinforce a sense of positive school community and we ask for your partnership in working with your child to discuss meaningful actions that they can take to engage in their community.
