Stoneman Douglas Principal Hugs Every Student Returning to School

Parents, students and staff returned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for the first time since the mass shooting that claimed 17 lives, for an orientation covering details of returning to class this Wednesday.

The media was asked not to fly helicopters over the campus, as many survivors of the Valentine's Day massacre have acute stress disorder and find the sound similar to that of bullets.

 
 
 

However, the return to MSD was met with lots of optimism

 
 
 

Principal Ty Thompson even made good on his promise to hug each of his students, with some of the emotional embraces caught on camera.
