National School Walkout – March 14th

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As a district we are aware that there may be some students who are planning to participate in the National School Walkout tomorrow, March 14th at 10:00am. The Coos Bay School District is not taking a particular viewpoint of any kind. However, we will provide our students a safe environment to express themselves and honor the 17 lives that were lost at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. At the conclusion of the 17 minute walkout we will be expecting students to return to class and go about our school business as usual. Our building administration will collaborate with our school security personnel as well as our school resource officer to ensure the environment is safe and respectful.
