MIDDLEBURG – A protest was held Wednesday morning by Midd-West High School students to express concerns about bullying in the school. This response comes after two student suicides at Midd-West in the past two weeks. School Principal Thor Edmiston tells WKOK about 110 students met in the school lobby, along with guidance counselors and district administration.
Edmiston says many students shared personal stories about issues they are dealing with both in and out of school. He says there were some stories about situations where the perception was that nothing was being done. Edmison says he understands that feeling, but says when an incident is reported, administration investigates it. He says the group also asked for permission to hold weekly student support meetings at the school, and they will be provided a location for those weekly meetings.
