At 10am this morning students across the nation and the northwest walked out of class for 17 minutes to honor the 17 killed in the Parkland school shooting on February 14. Whether your child participated in the walk out or not it definitely impacted their day and is a great open door to discuss this issue as a family. There is another national walk out scheduled for April 20 as well as March for Our Lives March 24.
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is in support of all students united in this cause.
