The walkout is happening during the homeroom period at Huntington High School. The protesting students said they were forced to attend an event held by the school’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

“It is inappropriate and unconstitutional for the District to offer religious leaders unique access to preach and proselytize students during school hours on school property,” wrote the nonprofit Freedom From Religion Foundation in a letter to the school board.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information is available.
