Wednesday's Potential Walkout and Citizenship Day

Dear Middle School Students and Families,


On Wednesday, March 14, Womens March Youth Impower is calling for a school walkout at 10 a.m. for 17 minutes.

LBUSD supports students’ rights to peaceful assembly and free expression, but school is about teaching and learning as priority. Our usual expectations for student conduct will remain in place.

 

We will provide space on campus for students to assemble peacefully. Cubberley Middle School Students who will be participating in the walkout are expected to meet at the lunch bench area. While there, our Students Council and PTA/Foundation will provide them with the opportunity to sign a poster for the victims of the Parkland, Florida shooting. Students will also be able to create a "Kindness Chain" where students will commit to an act of kindness that they will do within the week.

 

We ask students not to move off campus, for their own safety and security.

 

Students should remain respectful of classmates who may not wish to participate, and/or students who may hold opposing views. Teachers will remain in class and will continue with their lessons.

 

You may see increased staff, School Safety and other law enforcement presence at our local high schools. This
presence is for student and staff protection and safety, not to quell expression.

 

Currently there are no plans or expectation that elementary students will walkout of class; however, if they would like to participate in the "Kindness Chain" activity, parent volunteers will be available on the primary and secondary side of campus during their first recess. 

 

Wednesday, March 14th is also wear Red, White or Blue for Citizenship Day. 

Being a good citizen means:

1. Being respectful of other people and their property

2. Being respectful of school property

3. Following school rules

4. Displaying good character

5. Giving back to the school community or community at large

 

We encourage all students who are striving to be good citizens to wear red, white and blue. 

 

Thank you,

Mrs. Imbroane
