Students returned to Stoneman Douglas High School Wednesday, two weeks after a gunman killed 17 people on campus. Dozens of police officers representing Miami-Dade County and Palm Beach to up to New York surrounded the school as students walked in to make them feel safe, per the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel.

The big picture: As school resumes, students from Parkland remain extremely vocal in the national conversation on gun control, with the student-organized March for Our Lives scheduled for March 24.
