Tomorrow, April 27, is the National Day of Silence for students and teachers alike across the United States. The day has been held every April since 1996 and is an effort to spread awareness about the harassment and bullying of LGBTQ students and symbolically represent how they are silenced. Students and teachers who choose to participate take a day-long vow of silence in solidarity with the Lake Forest High School’s LGBTQ community.

The day is publicized by LFHS Alliance, our school’s LGBTQ club that is run by English teacher Mr. Wanninger. All LFHS teachers are aware of the Day of Silence, so students who choose to participate will be observed and respected in their classes. Furthermore, LFHS Alliance will be offering Day of Silence stickers and speaking cards available for those who are choosing to be silent for the school day so that they are easily recognized by their peers and educators. For students who would like to show support but not remain silent and are interested in temporary tattoos or stickers, they may visit Mr. Wanninger’s room before school tomorrow. Alternatively, allies can also stand in unity with the LGBTQ community by wearing purple.

Those participating in the Day of Silence are encouraged to join Alliance at the front doors at 3:25 PM tomorrow afternoon to Break the Silence, which is a big group scream.

Please be respectful of all participating in the Day of Silence tomorrow and be cognizant of your peers.
