Dear Parents and Guardians,
The High School will be participating in a student-led national event, Day of Silence on April 12, 2019. Many of our teachers and students have elected to participate in this day, which has been a national event since 1996. The purpose of participating in this day is to spread awareness about the effects of homophobic bullying and harassment by symbolizing the silencing of LGBTQ+ students.
Students who elect to participate take a vow of silence for the day. To participate in the day, students have two choices:
- Go about their day respectfully, speaking as usual.
- Approach the GSA table in our cafeteria and get a sticker that shows they are a “Day of Silence Supporter.” Then go about their day respectfully, speaking as usual, or remain silent for the day.
Silence begins at 8:45 and ends at 3:15.
For more information:
We want you to be aware of this day, so you may discuss the event with your child should you choose.
