Students organized a peaceful protest in response to the Jason Stockley not guilty verdict that was announced last Friday. Students exited the senior and junior entrances at about 10:10 a.m. during fourth hour and gathered along Selma Avenue, shouting “Black Lives Matter!” and “Hands up, don’t shoot!”
The students circled the school twice before heading back to class.
