When 3,000 students endure the heart-wrenching experience of returning to the school where 17 of their classmates and teachers were killed by gunfire, they’ll be welcomed by decorations made by The Conservatory School students.
The K-8 school in North Palm Beach had a “Peace and Love Day” Friday, during which they made banners and sang songs dedicated to students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Incredibly proud of our #TCSMS Ss for planning and making Peace & Love Day happen today to honor the students and teachers at MSD. Singing about love as one united family✌🏻💜 #love #NeverAgainMSD #PeaceAndLoveTCS @peaceandloveTCS pic.twitter.com/aZnVdLrQso— Michelle Walsh (@MrsWalshTCS) February 23, 2018
Teachers started returning to the school Friday, and students will resume classes on a modified schedule on Wednesday. Counselors and armed deputies will be on hand.
Nikolas Cruz, 19, confessed to the Feb. 14 shooting and is charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder. Fourteen of the 17 people Cruz fatally shot with a legally-purchased Ar-15 were students. He is being held without bond at the Broward County jail.
