March 14 happens to be a half-day at Barnstable High School, so Ellis said the students received permission from school administration to start dismissals at 9:45 a.m. and begin activities in front of the school at 9:58 a.m. for 17 minutes.

Morgan Hill Unified School District's superintendent sent out a March 7 letter to all "employees, parents, guardians and students" regarding the district's strategy to allow for student participation in planned school walkouts and protests.

"The USVI is no stranger to gun violence".

"We love the passion of our students as they learn about the world and we recognize that student advocacy is a part of the learning process", Olson said.

McNeill said "we spend a lot of time" preparing the school community on safety measures, including teachers having to watch videos on active shooter situations.

Students at Somerville High School helped plan the 8:17 a.m. walkout, which followed one at that school last week in which hundreds of teenagers left classes, sat silently for 17 minutes, and then marched down Highland Avenue to Trum Field in protest.

"We are walking out for all people who have experienced gun violence, including systemic forms of gun violence that disproportionately impact teens in Black and Brown communities".

The Florida Senate has passed a school safety bill that would place new restrictions on rifle sales, allow some teachers to carry guns in schools and create new school mental health programs.

"We're going to raise our voices". The goal of the organized walkout is to "demand Congress pass legislation to keep us safe from gun violence at our schools, on our streets and in our homes and places of worship". "By supporting the organization, we keep it a safe event". We are not safe in our cities and towns. The House needs 59 votes to pass the bill.

She said the students who are meeting before school next Wednesday will be holding up individual signs and conducting other observances in the memory of the Florida victims. A similar event is planned for April 20 in Portsmouth. State testing began for some high school students last week and is to run through mid-May.

After so many mass shootings throughout the country, the images of death and horror at the high school in Florida convinced her to take a stand for school safety, she said. All actions must be inclusive and non-violent.

Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade received a hero's welcome as he paid a visit to the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School in the wake of the recent shooting there which claimed the lives of seventeen people.
