UPDATE FEB. 22: The Clark County School District released information on how students could be disciplined if they walk out of class.
"The Clark County School District does not give students permission to walk out of school and attendance must be taken in every class period. Additionally, it is the school's responsibility to notify the parent or guardian if a child is absent. If a student chooses to walk out they will be ineligible to participate in any athletics or extra-curricular activities. As students may exercise expression over this extremely important topic, it is critical that staff monitor events on and off campus."
The student would be ineligible to participate in athletic and extracurricular activities for that day.
LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- About 75 students walked out of Silverado High School Wednesday.
The incident occurred around noon when the students walked out to the school's flag pole and sat around it for 17 minutes before returning to class.
The students reportedly walked out in honor of the 17 people killed at a high school in Parkland, Florida, one week ago.
