More than 100 Ingleside Middle School students participated in the walkout, but only those who left school property were disciplined with a one-day suspension, according to a school-district official.

Ingleside Principal Chris Thuman had warned students ahead of time in an email to parents. Still, some expressed surprise that students who

demonstrated off-campus were locked out and prohibited from returning to class.
