[Ed. – Hogg and his Hoggettes continue to run into resistance.]
Columbine High School leaders are respectfully pushing back against another nationwide school walkout scheduled for this Friday, April 20: the date of the Columbine shooting.
They’re reminding students in Colorado and across the country that the Columbine community has turned the 20th day of April into a day of service, not protest.
The school confirms that a letter shared on social media, written by Columbine High School Principal Scott Christy, is legitimate. In the letter, Christy wrote:
“This year April 20 is garnering more attention that [sic] usual in the national and statewide media. We wanted to reach out to students, school leaders and school communities to share what our tradition has been and invite you to join us. We know another walkout has been promoted by various groups, however, in Jeffco the month of April has long been a time to respectfully remember our loss, and also support the efforts to make our communities a better place. Please consider planning service projects, an activity that will somehow build up your school, or perhaps pre-Day Without Hate event on April 20, as opposed to a walkout. …
