Parkland Florida school shooting

MARQUETTE, MI--   Students and staff in the Marquette Area Public Schools district will take part in Wednesday’s 17-minute national school walkout. 

The event was created, in part, to honor the 17 people killed at the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida. MAPS Superintendent William Saunders says his administration has worked closely with students and staff to develop a structured mechanism to support their wishes.
