North Shore School District 112 has notified parents and community members that it will not participate in the national school walkout on March 14 planned in response to the school mass shooting February 14 in Parkland, Fla.

Students trickled out of Lumberton High School about 11:30 a.m., shortly after an announcement from Principal Larry Obeda.

Students at two Columbus-area schools held demonstrations in solidarity with Florida high-schoolers who are pushing for new gun laws.

Students say they are frustrated with the lack of action regarding gun control, and that it's time for their voice to be heard.

The leader of Robeson County public schools responded Wednesday to a planned student protest to call for stricter gun control and increased mental health services with an organized event aimed at supporting the ideal of violence-free schools and communities.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that about 75 students gathered around the Silverado High School campus flag for 17 minutes on Wednesday to mark a Parkland, Florida, school shooting last week that left 17 dead. The students took turns addressing the energetic crowd until Mayor Jacob Frey arrived and encouraged their enthusiasm with his own. The school district operates 11 elementary and middle schools in Highland Park and Highwood. "No guns in our schools" was the rallying cry of the afternoon, with a source telling Fox 9 the Minneapolis City Council is working on a proposal to take an official position favoring a statewide assault weapon ban.

"It makes me really, really happy that they are behind us right now".

"The politicians sit on their hands as our children and their teachers are murdered in their schools", Diane Ravitch, the group's president, and Carol Burris, its executive director, said in a post online.

Some students at schools near Cleveland also walked out of class.

About 15 student counter-protesters were on the Higgins street bridge as well, with a bullhorn, chanting "guns for us".

The room and hallway fell silent when Faydane Ouro-Akondo, a 17-year-old senior at Southwest High School, stepped to the microphone.

"People our age are being affected and we want to show that we have a voice and we have opinions on this", she said. "Again, we don't want to lead this, because truly I think the most effective body in this work will be the young people themselves".

Falmouth School Committee member Walter Crotty said he expects his panel to discuss it when they meet. If a gunman entered the campus, she said, there's no teacher, student or security guard who could stop him.

"It's heartbreaking that kids are having to take leadership on an issue like this", she said.
