VERONA, NJ - Verona High School administration does not condone walkouts, but it will not enforce consequences on students who choose to participate in National Walkout Day on Wednesday.  

The National Walkout commemorates the one-month anniversary of the tragedy which took place at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.  Schools across the nation have organized a 17-minute walkout at 10 a.m. on Wednesday -- one minute for each of the 17 victims of the Parkland shooting.

Some students at VHS informed the administration of their intent to participate.  With this in mind, Verona High School sent a letter to parents explaining that when students walkout they must do so respectfully and cause little disruption to the school day.  Any school work missed during the walkout will be the responsibility of the student.  As long as the students engage in the walkout appropriately, there will be no consequences for those who participate.  VHS administration also noted that the Verona Police Department will be on hand to maintain a safe environment.
