Holcomb is spearheading a school walkout on the morning of March 14.

"School shootings have become more and more frequent and it's just a frightful thing,"said Hannah Doerr, 18, a senior who helped plan the walk-out".

"On Tuesday, the students walked to the entrance of the school next to Highway 108, with some holding signs saying, "#enough".

The Network for Public Education, an advocacy organization for public schools, meanwhile, announced a "national day of action" on April 20, the anniversary of the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado, in which two students opened fire on their classmates, killing 12 students and one teacher.

Students said this is just the beginning, with more demonstrations planned for the near future.

According to the Madison Metropolitan School District policies and procedures page, "All persons, including students and employees, who violate this Policy may be referred to the police for prosecution".

"Them making us stand in the courtyard, you can't see that", one student who stood off campus said.

"I wish that this doesn't stop because we just can't let the 17 people that died, let their names go in vain and then just forget about it and wait till the next shooting happens", Lobos said. "I think it shows a lot of cohesiveness for change in general". They say the even is meant to be peaceful and provide a space for students to speak out on criminal background checks on gun control. "We encourage anyone to come forward with any safety concern, whether there is a threat against others or an individual posing harm to himself or herself", Parker said.

"I'm super proud of them", she said.

"Once the students got involved in Parkland, it really did feel different", he said. The first one being March 14, organized by Women's March supporters as National Walkout Day.

He also said the students of Homer High School know they're not alone. The Bemidji Police Department's daily blotter said Wednesday that a student at 1900 block of Middle School Drive Northwest - where Bemidji Middle School is located - had threatened via writing to kill a staff member there and had a knife.
