But the event was not fully surrounded by Trump supporters. Former VP Joe Biden supporters spent the afternoon outside Trinity Schools protesting the rally.

Because of heightened security around the schools and extra traffic, Trinity Schools decided to have the high school, middle school and Trinity West Elementary work online Thursday.

Sandy Sabot, who helped organize the protest, told Channel 11 they reached out to the district ahead of time and said they wanted a peaceful rally and would stay off their property.

She said that wasn’t necessary to have the children go virtual for the day, but others thought it was the right choice.

“I think they took the right precaution just because you never know what things are going to turn into, especially when it’s considered “peaceful.” It can get destructive really quick,” said Micah Stopperich.

The protest ended without any issues or arrests.
