Student Voice and Safety
Wednesday, February 21, 2018 1:20 PM

Last week’s school shooting in Florida made an impact on people across our country. While we have policies in place to keep our students safe to the best of our ability, many people are wondering what else can be done. Across the nation, students have been especially active in speaking out on this issue, and they have organized a number of activities in response to the shooting. Minneapolis Public Schools is keeping track of these events and shared resources last week with schools and posted them on social media and our website. We encourage you to have conversations with your student about your expectations and participation in non-school sponsored activities. As a reminder, we have procedures in place regarding non-school activities, including walkouts. You can learn more at
