On Wednesday, March 14, some Lincoln Academy students plan to participate in a nation-wide walkout event to support school safety.

In anticipation of this event, we want to make it clear that no student will receive disciplinary action for participating, that no student will be compelled to walk out, that all students will have adult supervision during the event, and that the safety and well-being of our students is our highest priority. During the walkout, all students will remain on campus.

We ask that the community respect that this is a student protest, and not a community event. While we appreciate that some in the community would like to join our students to support their walkout, safety considerations make it prudent to close our campus and keep this a student-only event.

Thank you.

Andrew T. Mullin, Associate Head of School
