The Broward County School Board has requested $28.5 million from legislature to replace and restore the site of a massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school on February 14. School district’s request includes $500’000 for a memorial. Cathleen Brennan, a spokeswoman for Broward County Public Schools, told if the school board’s request is denied, it will work with Marjory Stoneman Douglas community to raise funds for memorial. Some teachers opted to return to classroom Friday for an optional day of school, more than a week after accused gunman Nikolas Cruz opened fire on students and teachers, killing 17 people. A variety of support services were made available to those who chose to return to campus. School told it will hold a voluntary campus orientation Sunday for students and their families. All of its staff will return to school on Monday, February 26 and Tuesday, February 27, to prepare for students’ return to campus Wednesday. School will be in session from 7:40 Am to 11:40 Am through Friday, March 2. A number of parents have vowed never to send their children back to school, opting either to leave area or enroll them in homeschool.
