Consequences for walking out of school

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Students across the nation may walk out of school Wednesday.

While there hasn't been much talk of high schools in the Magic Valley participating, there has been talk of students having a moment of silence at the beginning of every class period in Jerome, doing acts of kindness and service or even promoting healthy activities.

If students do walk out, they could be marked absent depending on their school district and the absence policy.

Debbie Critchfield of the Cassia County School District said that when it comes to students in their county, they could be marked absent.

"If a student is gone from class for more than 10 minutes, it is counted as an absence. If a parent or guardian calls into the school, they can excuse their child from that absence," she said. "If some form of notification doesn't take place, then that student is marked as unexcused."
