Ozaukee Press Article - Inaccurate Information
The Ozaukee Press dated Thursday, March 15, 2018 included an article titled CG-Belgium School District didn't allow student walkout on March 14. The headline is simply not true. No Cedar Grove-Belgium student was prohibited from participating in the walkout as long as an excused absence was on file in respective school offices. The article failed to accurately represent the understanding and support that was provided to all students whether they remained inside a school building or outside a school building as part of a national school walkout that was held on March 14. The administration fully supported any student who had an interest in participating in the national school walkout. The Ozaukee Press was contacted regarding the inaccurate information. The Ozaukee Press indicated it intends to provide a correction with associated March 14th details in its next issue.

Dear Parents and Guardians of Students of the Cedar Grove-Belgium School District,
The school shooting that took place in Parkland, Florida, which resulted in 17 students and staff losing their lives has rocked schools across the nation. As many schools grapple with the aftermath, students, staff, and community members are demanding action to help stop school violence. A number of local, state, and nationwide movements have been spurred as a result.
The CGBSD administration is aware of events that are planned around the country and in Wisconsin in response to the Florida shooting and the national conversation that has unfolded. A great deal of attention is currently focused on a national student “ walkout” scheduled for March 14, 2018, the one month anniversary of the Florida shootings scheduled for 10:00 am for a duration of 17 minutes; one minute for each life lost at Stoneman Douglas High School. The walkout was organized by Women’s March Youth EMPOWER in response to gun violence plaguing our schools.
CGBSD recently invited local superintendents, law enforcement representatives, and buildings and grounds personnel to hear district parent, and Navy SEAL Commander Shane Anderson address school safety. Mr. Anderson shared ideas about safeguards and solutions, emergency action plans, staff training opportunities, and provided an opportunity for those in attendance to ask questions and share thoughts and ideas.
Thank you Mr. Anderson!
