Local school districts plan for protests following Florida shooting

The March 14 walkout is one of many events planned this spring to remember victims of school shootings and to protest gun violence. And some schools have responded by banning cell phones, a policy which, in the event of an actual threat, could actually impede efforts to contact authorities or loved ones. "An important part of school is helping students learn to advocate for themselves, stand up for what they believe - and approach their concerns through dialogue and reason". Although she and her middle school peers had already planned their walkout, she expressed her appreciation for The Leader's February 28 news story about the Chimacum High School students' walkout. "We're going to be heard", she said.

"We ask that this be a quiet, reflective time out of respect for the 17 lives that were lost", Gauen's letter said.

"What this really is for is for all of the United States and all of the schools where students don't feel comfortable in", she said. "I hope even teachers come out".

Classes will follow the regular schedule March 14, she said, and any absences associated with the national walkouts will be excused.

I can see this as the start of a new movement. "I think this movement has taken on a life of its own".
