District statement on potential student walkouts

The White Bear Lake Area School District supports students' rights to free speech and peaceful assembly, so long as doing so is not disruptive and is done in accordance with district policy. It is important to note that per the district's attendance policy, if students walk out of school unexcused, they may be prohibited from participating in after-school activities.

In the event of a planned walkout:
  • School leaders will help make sure students leave the building in an orderly fashion.

  • Leaving the building may result in an unexcused absence unless parent/guardian permission is provided.  

  • Students who leave may forfeit their right to participate in after-school and/or evening activities, practices and athletic events.

  • WBLAS will work to ensure student and staff safety while maintaining a stable learning environment for students who remain in the building.

  • While students may not be disciplined for protesting or demonstrating, any other infractions that take place during the protest or demonstration will be addressed in accordance with the district's discipline policy.

Parents/Guardians are also encouraged to have conversations with their student about their expectations and participation in non-school sponsored activities, including student walkouts or protests.
