Today, students across the county will participate in the National School Walkout Day.
At 10 am local time, students are expected to walk out of class in peaceful protest for 17 minutes to remember the 17 killed at Majory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.
The shooting happened exactly one month ago.
Local schools have put in place plans for students who want to participate in the walkout.
Many universities and colleges in our area have said they will support students who had applied or will apply to their schools and choose to exercise their first amendment rights peacefully.
