CMS officials say four schools in the district were placed on lockdown Friday in reaction to a student walk out at Garinger High School.

According to CMS, the protest began during Garinger's first period, when approximately 500 students staged a peaceful demonstration in opposition to recent immigration policies. Most of the students returned to class when the second period bell rang, but CMS says 100 students instead walked off campus, prompting neighboring Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School to go on lockdown for about an hour.
