Middle Schoolers Have Rights Too!
Students across the country, including Rye Neck High School, are planning a National School Walkout Day at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 14, the one-month anniversary of the tragedy in Parkland, Florida. The walkout is planned to last for 17 minutes in recognition of the 17 lives lost that day. We believe the Rye Neck School District should respect the activism and interest demonstrated by Middle Schoolers and allow them to participate. Threatening to suspend students goes against the values we stand for.
