    On Wednesday, March 14, CHS students who feel strongly about safe schools and sensible gun laws will join the National School Walkout for 17 minutes at 10:00.   

    Student Action Leaders want everyone to understand that

    1. a) the Walk Out is optional,
    2. b) the school's attendance policy remains in place, and
    3. c) participating students will show support for school safety and the five laws called for by survivors of the Parkland shooting.    Those laws include:
    4.  supporting more research into gun violence;  
    5. digitizing all gun sales so they can be better tracked;
    6.  requiring universal background checks;
    7.  limiting the sale of high-capacity magazines and,
    8.  prohibiting assault weapons.

    This is a show of unity, passion and peace.  


    In preparation for the Walkout tomorrow, the Student Action Committee will be working on demonstration materials to showcase the variety of student perspectives. If you would like to participate, please We join us in the Commons at 3:15. If you have any questions, contact Paige Holmes or Annelise Laakko.
