La Crosse high school students plan an organized walkout

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A student-let group at Central High School is organizing a walkout on March 14 in support of both the National School Walkout (March 14) and National High School Walkout for Anti-gun Violence (April 20).

In a message from Central High School to parents, Principal McDonald said safety of students who participate this event is their priority.

McDonald said, "The goal is to respect all viewpoints while supporting students by providing a safe environment for them to voice their concerns."

The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 13.

"This student-led group is completely voluntary, as is participation in the planned event.  Classes at Central High School will proceed as usual that day, and our schedule will not be altered to accommodate the event.  Additionally, we will not condone any activity that involves students walking outside the school building and compromising their safety.  Students who choose to leave the building for such an event will be considered unexcused," McDonald said.
