Information About March 14 Student-led "Walkout" in Support of Stoneman Douglas

On March 14, a student driven, national “walkout” is scheduled for 10 a.m. Many students from across the nation are planning to leave their classrooms for 17 minutes in support of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Episcopal students have the option to participate in the student-led “walkout” or they can continue with class as normal. Students who walk out are planning to assemble on campus for 17 minutes to show unity with other students from across the nation. During this time, students will hear from their classmates about ways that Episcopal can partner with Marjory Stoneman Douglas in pen pal correspondence for the remainder of the school year. Additionally, an ESJ student will read excerpts of a letter she wrote to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas community about Episcopal’s journey and how the Parkland tragedy has inspired her to become more civically engaged. The walkout will close with a moment of silence and respect. ESJ students will have an opportunity to sign a banner in support of Marjory Stoneman Douglas during the walkout or during lunch. Episcopal is very proud of the students who took the initiative to come forward to lend their voices to show love, compassion and activism for the community.
