The next round of student anti-gun walkouts is scheduled for this Friday, April 20, which just happens to be the 19th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre.

"We do not anticipate large participation as seen in the past due to the fact many of our students are in the midst of testing as the school year is winding down".

Your school's administration will be glad to discuss additional questions or concerns.

Therefore, while we remain neutral in our stance, we have offered to provide a venue on the campus that will allow us to provide security and supervision to those students who choose to participate in the event. "We always have a responsibility to preserve the valuable instructional time and keep it free from interruptions".

Parents should know we are working with students. The April walkout is organized by 16-year-old Lane Murdock, who attends Ridgefield High School in CT and told ABC News that she was inspired to action after the Parkland shooting.

Organizers have asked college students to utilize orange and also to observe a 13-second silence to honor the victims killed at Columbine.

After that, the schedule of the walkouts is up to the local organizers and participants. Students are planning to walk out of their classrooms at 10 a.m., meet at Mill Creek Park at 1 p.m. and march to the Liberty Bell on Truxtun Avenue.

Hicks said that even with the change in time of their protests that he believes it will be effective.

"It's more of a learning thing than a debate", Schonkaes said.

"Educators are united in saying "No More" to the gun violence that has senselessly injured or taken the lives of too many students and too many school staff members, some of whom have bravely sacrificed themselves to shield their students from harm", said CTA President Eric Heins. Wait said the event may last an hour, and then the regular schedule will resume after lunch.

"I'm a child from the 60s; I've been there", Sisson said. Each school will handle their student requests on an individual basis.

Sadly, the debate about gun violence has cooled considerably after the Parkland shootings. "We have the tools to talk about it and they can't stop us". I visibly remember what he was wearing, with the baseball cap turned backward and white T-shirt, black vest.

But, DeAngelis added, in those years, "I needed Columbine probably more than it needed me".

Hicks isn't the only one who feels this way.

Regardless of demographics, most parents are anxious, with 63 percent of all those surveyed saying they are concerned about school shootings affecting their children. Almost three-quarters of Hispanic students say they are at least somewhat anxious about a shooting, compared to about half of white students saying the same.
