The Milford School District is not condoning a school walkout this week. Instead, the district will provide spaces in-schools for students if they wish to express solidarity for the students killed in a school shooting last month. In a letter home to parents Superintendent Kevin Dickerson says the district supports freedom of expression, but does not endorse protests. He says maintaining safe schools is his main objective. Middle and elementary students will not be able to walk out unless a parent or guardian signs them out for early dismissal and then signs them back in after the 17 minutes. High school students will be marked as unexcused if they participate in the walk out.
