National School Walk Out Information

There is a social media movement for students to participate school walkouts. Organizers say the walkouts are in protest of the lack of federal legislation to keep schools and communities safe from gun violence.

While the Oceanside Unified School District supports the freedom of speech rights of students and adults, our priorities remain the safety and education of our students.

Each school in the district has an established school safety plan. The plans have been updated to include protocols for student walkouts. Please contact your child's school if you have specific questions.

Schools have also been given the below District Guidelines.

  • listen to their concerns and feelings
  • suggest they limit their use of media to lower their stress and to maintain balance and perspective, and
  • realize that sleep difficulties are common and can lead to fatigue and poor participation.

The below resources are designed to help parents and educators take to students about dealing with trauma:
