Today, many schools across the United States participated in a National School Walk-out, a peaceful demonstration in support of ‘gun control’, especially in public schools. 

The recent school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, occurred on Valentines Day, February 14th. The National School/Student Walk-out movement has been generated by students during the aftermath of the Parkland, High School massacre; the cause is to protest against gun violence.    

In Sacramento, California protesting students marched out of elementary, middle and high school classrooms in solidarity with others, who are demanding change in gun laws.

Today, the BVUSD Schools participating were the Big Bear Middle School and Big Bear High School. Specifically, at 10:00 A.M., in each time-zone, 17 Minutes in commemoration of the 17 Florida people that died in the Valentines Day massacre. Many schools also set 17 empty chairs to symbolize those lives lost.  Students voluntarily had the opportunity to express their own thoughts.
