Port Townsend High School Principal Carrie Ehrhardt was not available for comment Monday.

The Broward State Attorney's Office typically presents evidence to grand jurors in all first-degree murder cases and all police shootings.

Superintendent Nancy Welch said the division is planning an event on March 22 for middle and high school students who are interested in either (or both) the March 14 walkout and the March 24 planned March For Our Lives walk on Washington, D.C.

"I think there's a honest thought process".

The district asked parents to provide that permission before the walkout.

Students who chose not to participate in the demonstration outside will be allowed to share their feelings through essays and/or poetry on message boards during breakfast/lunch.

Students will neither be encouraged nor discouraged from participating in the walkout, though if they choose to do so, they will receive an unexcused absence for the missed class period. We believe this is one of those times. "At age 15, he has a right to his own views".

Student organizers issued a statement before the protest in which they criticized legislators for not doing enough to make them safe in schools.

The walkout, part of a national campaign sponsored by the people who organized the Women's March in 2017, is one of three protests in the wake of the mass shooting February 14 in Parkland, Fla.

Central High School Senior Rose Lamoureaux says, "The idea originated with the Majory Stoneman Douglas students in Florida after the massacre happened. It's about school safety and student voice, as students grapple with their role in the world and their ability to impact their surroundings".

Since the shooting in Florida that left 17 dead, efforts are starting to be made at the state and federal level on gun control. Our shock translated into action. Their voices were going to be heard.

Parents can keep students out of school for any reason, Johnson explained, but if the attendance office is not notified, the absence is unexcused. "We wanted to be proactive and inform our families and staff about what our plan is, . about how we'll manage these kinds of events".

While parents and community members may be concerned about school violence, Vinson emphasized that next week's event is on school grounds and it is restricted to students only to ensure their safety and the staff's safety.

"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.

Wade later wrote on Twitter that he had a "great conversation" with students about "some important/impactful things that they have planned".
