National Walkouts and Demonstrations (Huelgas y Manifestaciones Nacionales)

National Walkouts and Demonstrations


Hello, students and families.  The Long Beach Unified School District is aware of rumors of planned student protests and/or walkouts at some schools in response to the tragedy in Parkland, Florida.  It appears that at least three major student-led efforts are underway nationally, including on Wednesday, March 14; Saturday, March 24; and Friday, April 20.


Our top priority is to support the needs of our students while maintaining a safe and orderly learning environment for all. Free political expression and activity is one of the great privileges that we enjoy in this country.  It is a privilege that should be taken seriously and used in a responsible way.  Teachers and administrators here are always glad to see students become interested in any important issues facing our country, and are glad to encourage political participation by students, as long as it is done in a responsible way.  

We respect and support the right of our students to advocate for causes that are important to them and welcome the opportunity to work with any student or student group to discuss appropriate and creative ways to do so while at school. 


Leaving campus during school hours to participate in political activity is not a safe and responsible way to work for change.  We encourage you to talk to your children about how they may be feeling about this topic, and the importance of expressing themselves in appropriate ways at school. Students attempting to leave campus will not be held at school.  But it’s important to know that disorderly conduct that disrupts school operations is not acceptable, and our usual expectations will remain in effect.


The most responsible way for students to pursue political change is to stay in school during school hours and pursue their political objectives here on campus in an acceptable forum, or wait until after-school hours to participate in political activities off campus.  Opportunities for on-campus expression are being planned at all middle and high school campuses.  In addition, Long Beach will be among the cities holding demonstrations nationwide on Saturday, March 24.  The Long Beach event is planned for 10 a.m. at Bixby Park, located at 130 Cherry Ave. in Long Beach.


Thank you for your continued support.

Huelgas y Manifestaciones Nacionales


Hola, estudiantes y familias.  El Distrito Escolar Unificado de Long Beach está al tanto de los rumores de planes de protestas y/o huelgas estudiantiles en algunas escuelas en respuesta a la tragedia en Parkland, Florida.  Parece ser que por lo menos tres esfuerzos dirigidos por estudiantes están en curso a nivel nacional, incluyendo el miércoles, 14 de marzo; sábado, 24 de marzo; y viernes, 20 de abril.


Nuestra prioridad principal es apoyar las necesidades de nuestros estudiantes mientras mantenemos un ambiente de aprendizaje seguro y ordenado para todos.  En este país uno de los privilegios principales de los que gozamos es la expresión política y actividad libre.  Es un privilegio que debería tomarse seriamente y utilizarse de una manera responsable.  Aquí los maestros y administradores siempre están contentos de ver a los estudiantes interesarse en temas importantes que nuestra nación enfrenta, y se complacen en fomentar la participación política de los estudiantes, mientras se lleve a cabo de una manera responsable.  Respetamos y apoyamos el derecho de nuestros estudiantes de abogar por causas que son importantes para ellos y apreciamos la oportunidad de trabajar con todo estudiante o grupo de estudiantes para tratar las formas apropiadas y creativas de hacerlo mientras están en la escuela.


El salir del plantel durante horas escolares para participar en actividad política no es una forma segura y responsable de trabajar para el cambio.  Los animamos a que platiquen con sus hijos de cómo se sienten sobre este tema y de la importancia de expresarse en formas apropiadas dentro de la escuela.  A los estudiantes que intenten salir del plantel no se les detendrá en la escuela.  Pero es importante saber que la conducta desordenada que interrumpa las operaciones escolares no es aceptable y estarán en efecto nuestras expectativas habituales.


La manera más responsable de que los estudiantes busquen un cambio político es permaneciendo en la escuela durante las horas escolares y buscando sus objetivos políticos aquí en el plantel a través de un foro aceptable, o esperando hasta después de las horas escolares para participar en actividades políticas fuera del plantel.  Se están planeando oportunidades para expresarse dentro del plantel para todas las escuelas intermedias y preparatorias.  Además de esto, Long Beach es una de las ciudades que llevará a cabo demostraciones a nivel nacional el sábado 24 de marzo.  El evento en Long Beach está programado para las 10:00 a.m. en el Bixby Park, ubicado en el 130 Cherry Ave. en Long Beach.

Gracias por su apoyo continuo.
