Possible Student Walkout April 4
Possible Student Walkout on April 4
Posted on 04/03/2019

We are aware that some students are planning a walkout on Thursday, April 4, 2019. The stated purpose of the possible walkout is to protest the provincial government’s changes to education.

It is important for parents and guardians to be aware that this is not an event sanctioned by the Upper Canada District School Board. Regularly scheduled classes will be conducted on that day and it is our expectation that students will attend classes.

It is our very important task to maintain student safety at all times. This is made more difficult if students choose to leave their classrooms and/or school property for the purposes of a walkout.

In no manner can we accept others advocating that students are properly cared for by walking out of their school rather than being in class. Students are supervised in their classrooms and inside the school.

School Principals have communicated details of the planned student walkout to community police to ensure that they are aware that students may be in the community, unsupervised and as a measure of our concerns for student safety.

Staff will continue to bring to the attention of our students the appropriate channels available to them to express their views in a manner that promotes a balance between the interests of students and our obligation to safely operate our schools and supervise students.

We hope that this information will prompt open dialogue with your children about appropriate means to give voice to matters such as these.
