On March 14, Saint Leo the Great School students and staff participated in a Silent Walkout for the lives lost on February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

On July 28, 1917 a coalition of African Americans and religious groups came together for a Silent March adding to the Civil Rights Movement.

On March 14, Saint Leo the Great School students were not participating in a political movement or even a religious movement. The students and staff participated in a Silent Walkout showing their care and compassion for the lives lost on February 14, 2018 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The Saint Leo students silently honored the 17 human beings who lost their lives. They also prayed for the gunman. The Student Council Members and SPIRIT Squad prepared the Prayer Service and Silent Walkout.

Motorists passing by honked their horns to show their tribute to the lives lost. A motorist went so far as to send an email to the school office expressing his gratitude to the students and staff for their reverence and their kindness.
