Peaceful, Student-Organized Demonstration at FHS

On Wednesday, February 21, approximately 75 students from Fremd High School participated in a peaceful student-organized walkout in support and solidarity with the students in Parkland, Fla., and safety in our schools. Students participating in the demonstration walked outside the school building and gathered on the school campus for nearly 30 minutes.

Throughout the demonstration, school and district officials worked with members of the Palatine Police Department to ensure the safety of all students involved. Following the rally, students returned to their regularly scheduled classes, with minimum disruption to the school day.
