Dear Parents and Guardians:
I am writing to let you know about a peaceful protest by Hixson students today related to the situation in Ferguson. Approximately 48 students chose to leave the building during the noon hour for the protest on school grounds. The students were quiet and well behaved. The demonstration ended after about twenty minutes.
Administrators did speak to all students this morning about the protest and explained that leaving the building would be considered cutting class, for which there are consequences. We explained to the students the parameters for safely remaining on campus as well.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Safety for students is always our priority at Hixson.
Dr. Smith, Dr. Miller, Dr. Roberts
