ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Lindsay Peyton

Earlier in the week, students across Seattle walked out of their classrooms to protest the election of President-Elect Donald Trump.

A group from Pathfinder K-8 School piled across the bridge crossing Delridge Way SW, near Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. They carried signs in support of diversity, Planned Parenthood and love – and a number of drivers honked and waved in approval.

In response to media requests for more information, Luke Duecy, spokesman for Seattle Public Schools, said the students will receive unexcused absences for leaving campus.

He sent a statement that read:

“While the protests are not sanctioned by the district, Seattle Public School students do have the right to peacefully demonstrate and express their personal views . . . As a district we are responding to the requests and needs of our community and many schools are developing lessons and activities to have appropriate, post-election conversations in school buildings.”
