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.
