The Sentinel, the news outlet for Sierra High in the Harrison School District 2, is reporting that a large group of students walked out of class this morning in protest over staffing issues.
At 9:00AM on September 15th, 2011, a crowd of a few hundred kids walked out of their classes today in protest the numerous of the rule changes and teacher relocation’s. They started their protest across the street from Sierra, but was eventually moved to the school auditorium so they didn’t disturb the local residents.
Superintendent Mike Miles, and the school's principal, Sean Shields, took the opportunity to briefly address the frustrated students, according to The Sentinel.
Jennifer Sprague, public information officer for the district, says that the protest lasted for about two hours. All of the students are now all back in class.
She says that the protest was caused by the loss of two teachers, but chose not to elaborate.
Tonight, at 5:30 at the Central Administration Building at 1060 Harrison Road, she says, there will be a board meeting. Miles and Shields are expected to address the protest.
