Washington high school reopens after shooting
MARYSVILLE, WA - Hundreds of people lined the streets leading to a Washington state high school as it reopened more than a week after a student fatally shot three of his classmates, wounded two others and then killed himself.
Waving well-wishers, many holding candles, greeted students returning Monday to Marysville-Pilchuck High School following the Oct. 24 shooting.
A 10:30 a.m. assembly started the school day. Lunch is in the gym because the cafeteria where the shooting took place remains closed. The normal class schedule, with its earlier start, resumes Tuesday.
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee asked residents to wear red and white - the school colors.
The colors stand out vividly in a memorial with flowers, balloons and messages of love that covers the fence around the school.
