The National School Walkout was scheduled for this morning as students and teachers planned to stand together in both memorial and protest.  

The Harlem Patch posted this live video of students participating in the national walkout against gun violence.

 

Not every student across the country will partake as there are some concerns over being reprimanded.  For example, students in Sayerville, NJ could face up to 2 days suspension.  From NBC 10:

Students at one New Jersey school could face suspension if they join a nationwide walkout to mark a month since the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. 

Students in Sayreville will face two days of suspension if they participate in a 17-minute protest, commemorating the 17 students and faculty killed in Parkland, according to district officials.

NBC 10 continues:

"I think that's wrong, sorry, I think we need to show solidarity," said Lisa Whiteman. 

PIX 11 compiled a list of everything you need to know regarding students' rights:
