As high school students across the country plan to walk out of their classrooms Wednesday in protest of violence at schools, you will not be seeing that at Kewaunee. Student leadership teams met with their principal Mark Dax in recent weeks and decided against an organized walkout in efforts to continue the conversation about school safety. Kewaunee Superintendent Karen Treml says she appreciated the dialogue with students before action was taken.
Treml says they will be monitoring the situation Wednesday and will have staff available to talk if students need to speak with someone. Kewaunee County law enforcement has reached out to their local school to address their concerns regarding safety.
Sturgeon Bay High School arranged their morning break for students at 10 a.m. to allow the students the opportunity to participate in a walk-out while not disrupting class schedules, according to Superintendent Dan Tjernagel.
Gibraltar students plan on going ahead with the walk-out Wednesday morning.
