District Information Re: Student-Led Walkout(s)

Natrona County School District understands the interest of students in expressing their thoughts regarding school safety concerns. Students choosing to do so may participate in the student-led National School Walkout day on March 14th. (Additionally, the administration at Natrona County High School has been working with student leaders on the March 7th, student-led walkout planned.)

Students choosing to participate must follow student code of conduct expectations. The event(s) must not cause disruption to the classroom or interfere with school operations, per district policy.

Per policy, students who choose to participate will be recorded as absent from class. This ensures the school is able to account for those who are present and/or absent, thus ensuring student safety. Students must be accounted for while on school property and during the school day. Students will be expected to report back to class in a timely manner, without causing disruption to the learning environment, at the conclusion of the student-led event. Those who choose not to report back to class in a timely manner will be marked as an unverified absence and may face appropriate disciplinary consequences, per district policy.

Administrators will be working with student leaders to determine a location on school campuses for those electing to participate.

The walkouts are student-led and will be coordinated in conjunction with school administrators to keep students safe while respecting their choice to share their voice. Local law enforcement will have an increased presence in the areas of high school campuses during the planned walkout with the goal of keeping students safe. Oversight by administrators is intended in efforts to work together with students electing to participate while keeping students safe and ensuring a continued productive learning environment for all students.
