Hundreds of students from both high schools marched to Cromwell Park for rallies at the Shoreline District Court and the gazebo. The route necessarily took them along busy 175th.

Police cars positioned themselves at the front and back of the line of students,
allowing them to spill over from the narrow sidewalk into the street.

Shoreline Police were with them every step of the way, using the vehicles as physical barriers between the marchers and the traffic.

Every intersection was blocked in all directions until all the students had crossed the street. Officers were out of their vehicles, hand directing traffic away from the marchers.

Students expressed their appreciation for the police assistance.
