On Friday, September 20th, we anticipate there will be community walkouts involving students as part of Climate Strike, a day to raise awareness and call for urgent climate action.
Safety is always our priority. We are concerned about students who leave our schools unsupervised throughout the school day. We believe in honouring student voice and supporting students to be actively engaged in social issues such as climate change; however, our staff will not be leaving the school or participating during the work day. There will not be school supervision for students who leave the school to participate.
We ask that parents/caregivers engage in dialogue with their child(ren) about ways to take action and advise the school in advance should the student be allowed to participate in this walkout.
