AMDSB Warns Parents About Student Climate Walk-Out

Huron-Perth | by Fadi Didi  

School board officials say students free to demonstrate, but staff will not be supervising or taking part.

The Avon Maitland District School Board is warning parents of a planned walk-out by some students at schools in Huron and Perth counties.

A "Global Climate Strike" has been scheduled for Friday in cities and towns around the world, promoting leadership and action in the fight against global climate change.

AMDSB officials say staff will not be leaving the school or participating in climate-related demonstrations, although a student movement to do so will be respected.

A similar climate strike is scheduled for the following week, September 27th, in downtown Goderich.

That demonstration is scheduled from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Courthouse Park
