D.C. Area High School Protests Continue

WASHINGTON — A day after hundreds of students staged a peaceful protest at Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, another large protest is taking place in the District.

Hundreds of students walked out of school at Woodrow Wilson Senior High School, in the Tenleytown neighborhood, Tuesday morning in protest of President Elect Donald Trump.

Students from several other school joined them, and they continued on to Trump’s D.C. hotel and the Capitol.

Kimberly Martin, principal of Wilson, sent out a memo to the students and parents of the school regarding the walkout. The memo states it is an unsanctioned protest and students will be penalized for participating:

School or district administrators were not involved in or consulted with during the planning of this event and students are expected to be in school throughout the day. Any student who leaves will receive an unexcused absence for periods they miss.

It does not appear these protests will end any time soon, and Trump won’t actually even take office for another two months. Protests will likely be even more significant come January.
