Statement from Superintendent Mike Daulbaugh:
If there was ever any doubt regarding the class and integrity of our students, there shouldn’t be now. I just had the honor of standing by our students as they honored the seventeen victims of the Parkland Florida tragedy. Under the direction and planning of the student leadership team, students departed the school in a silent and orderly fashion and walked to the stadium.
After all participants were in the stadium, the student leadership team read the name and released a balloon for each of the victims from Parkland tragedy. After all names were read, all students locked arms and stood in silence for seventeen minutes to honor them. With wind chills below zero and snowing fiercely, the students remained quiet and reverent without moving.
As a superintendent, I could not be more proud of our students for the statement they made today. I was personally moved at the maturity and respect our students demonstrated today.
Also, I would like to thank the Streetsboro Police Department for sending cruisers to block off all access to the back part of the high school so that our students could protest in peace.
I would also like to thank the high school administration and guidance department for helping our students make such a powerful and positive statement.
WE HAVE THE BEST KIDS IN STREETSBORO. This community should be proud of our students!
