PARKLAND, Fla. (WPEC) - On Wednesday, students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School returned for their first full day of class since 17 people were killed on Valentine’s Day.
U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos spoke briefly after visiting with students and teachers.
Last Wednesday, more than a week after the horrific mass shooting, students returned to school but attended classes on a modified, half-day schedule.
This week, there will continue to be a heavy police presence at the school as students struggle to find a new sense of normalcy in the wake of the tragedy.
Students will be dismissed Wednesday at 2:40 p.m.
