The Women’s March has organized a National School Walkout to take place. Senior Class Vice President Kelli Lynch, Student Body President Julia Hoffman, Speech and Debate Club President Chris Bruno, Ms. Rocke, and the Action Club have spearheaded this walkout on a local level, so the students of Satellite High School can share their voice and be active in government.

Below are the details of the walkout:


What:

Satellite High School National School Walkout

Where:

Satellite High School Courtyard

When:

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018. 10:00am to 10:17am. 17 minutes in condolence for the 17 victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Shooting.*N.B. Students will not be penalized for participating; SHS administration supports the student voice and this event and will excuse absences for the 17 minutes at which the walkout occurs—students must return to class after the walkout, or else they will be disciplined for skipping class.

Why:

To honor the victims of the shooting and to raise awareness in security, mental health, and gun violence.

What to Wear:

Anything orange, as this color is the “national symbol of solidarity in the movement to stop gun violence.” Kelli Lynch, one of the organizers, is selling orange t-shirts for the walkout. To preorder one, DM her on Instagram at @kelli_annlynch, or find her on campus!

What to Bring:

Yourself, any friends who also wish to participate, and signs, if you’d like. Signs, however, must not include any profanity and must be school-appropriate. Remember, this walkout is to respect the victims of the massacre. Lynch recommends to “use your best judgement” when designing a sign.

What Will Happen:

Scorps will walk out for 17 minutes as a unified student body, in solidarity for the victims and in hope for change. It is with the best of intentions that by walking out, the student body will “be the change.” There will be two speeches and chorus will give a performance, as well.

What Not to Do:

You ought not come to the event for the express reason of “getting out of class,” for this is not the purpose of the walkout. Be respectful to the actions of others. If they wish not to participate, do not reprimand them. Each student, individually, has the free will to choose whether or not to walk out.


There is no sign-up to participate in the walkout: All you have to do is walk out of class, to the courtyard, for 17 minutes. It is as simple as that.
