SD308 students warned of consequences ahead of national walkout

A group of students at Pella High School is uniting their voices as part of a national walkout event Friday.

In a message to student participants, organizers urged students not to engage with any counter-protesters.

"We were very intrigued by the book and what happened that day", said sophomore Bethany Bishop, one of the event's organizers. Hogg tweeted Monday that demonstrators should join the Columbine community in acts of community service after the walkout. "But we want to give them their opportunity". Students who leave class to participate in planned activities on campus will not be marked absent and will not be penalized for missing class time.

Expectations for behavior and respect will remain consistent with those encouraged during any regular school day and students who do not meet those expectations will be subject to disciplinary action by BMS administrators as well.
