In the days after the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, students from south Palm Beach County schools, including Boca High, West Boca High and Atlantic High in Delray Beach, conducted walkouts and marches in solemn solidarity with Stoneman Douglas students. Seventeen students and teachers were killed at Stoneman Douglas.
