In an email Friday to all Westport Public School parents and students, Superintendent Dr. Colleen Palmer announced that Westport teachers cannot lead students on the walkout that will be occurring Wednesday, March 14.  Teachers are there only to ensure student safety.

The walkout is part of a national walkout day planned in response to the shootings in Parkland, Florida.

Bedford teachers will be monitoring everyone, including the people who don’t want to do the walkout.  Her email says parents should not come during the walkout, which is from 10 a.m. to 10:17 a.m.

Originally the district was planning on having students walk outside and gather on the Wakeman field, but over the weekend, the district decided that students will now be directed to the gym.

At 10:17, students will go back to their classrooms and continue their day.  Dr. Palmer also announced that the police will be there to make sure that the students are safe and that students should not use smartphones at that time.
