About 50 students at Los Alamos High School were involved in a sit-in protest at Los Alamos High School this afternoon.


The students were protesting the PARCC testing that will be starting at LAHS next week.

It was held after school today. Student organizers passed out a letter explaning their position on the testing.

Several Los Alamos Public School officials were on-hand, including Superintendent Gene Schmidt and LAHS principal Debbie Belew-Nyquist.

All the protesting at the school was peaceful and civil.
