BLOOMFIELD, NJ -  Bloomfield High School students joined thousands of other students across the state and around the country by walking out of classes as a part of the National School Walk Out. 

The student walk out at Bloomfield High School began at 9:45 a.m. Broad Street was blocked with numerous police vehicles and dump trucks from the Bloomfield Department of Public Works.

Once all of the students were outside and standing on Broad Street, a student with a megaphone stood at the top of the stairs and  began reading the names of the 17 victims that died at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida exactly one month ago today
