"It's important to give students a voice, to listen to their concerns", Highland High School Principal Dr. Karen Gauen wrote in a letter to parents on March 6 informing them of how the district plans to handle the event.

The school's student council wants its classmates to perform 17 acts of kindness on March 14, one for each of the people killed in a school shooting in Parkland, Fla., that reignited a national debate over gun violence. As of Cape Gazette's deadline, Dean said, Cape High was the only district school he knew had scheduled a walkout.

"Washington College was founded on the principles of moral courage, civic engagement, and commitment to action".

While another student with the Twitter handle @car_nove said in a reply to Tomi Lahren: "I was hiding in a closet for two hours. We're just looking for a way to get guns out of the hands of people who don't deserve to have them", said Brooks.

"When do we want it?"

With permission, he said participation in the walkout will be counted as an excused absence.

However, the aftermath of this shooting seems to be taking a different form.

National School Walkout Day is planned for March 14, exactly one month after the Parkland shooting. Enough is enough. Not one more student should die by gun violence.

"Those who face gun violence on a level that we have only just glimpsed from our gated communities have never had their voices heard in their entire lives the way that we have in these few weeks alone", she continues.

After the walkout, the students are planning a "Conversation on Student Activism" in the library. She said dozens of students seem committed to participating. "They're being really fearless, and I want them to continue that, and I do hope it's something he'll see and feel empowered by".

"Some students at last week's Somerville protest carried handmade signs with messages such as "#Never Again", "We Call BS", and "Protect Children Not Guns".

Students plan to leave class around 10 a.m.

"So every time the media starts talking about gun control", Pollack continued, "it takes away from our objective of making our schools safe, which is achievable right now it we come together".

Minnesota lawmakers are trying to figure out the best way to keep students from getting shot while they're at school.

Students on St. Croix attending UVI, Central High, Free Will, Seventh Day Adventist, St. Joseph's, and any other school - along with the St. Croix Educational Complex and Good Hope Country Day - are encouraged to participate.
