A teacher at Grant Middle says multiple teachers are walking out due to safety concerns for both students and educators; meanwhile, District 186 has said that multiple teachers and staff were off due to personal leave.

On Friday, students at Grant Middle School were greeted by several guest teachers alongside a number of their regular GMS teachers due to a higher number of staff personal leave absences than normal.

District 186 says they were notified of this possibility on Thursday and took swift action to ensure continuity for the students.

District 186 has noted that their staff should never have to deal with acts of misbehavior that make them feel unsafe.
