Bring back President's Week Vacation!

This petition had 71 supporters


This petition aims to express our dissatisfaction with the loss of President’s Week vacation over the last several years in the BOWA (Bethany, Orange, Woodbridge and Amity) School Districts. Vacation time with our families is precious. With so much of our time accounted for in all of our busy lives, we rely on vacation time to reconnect. Losing that week has had a major impact on our families. And we want this to change!

It is with this in mind that we implore the BOWA School System, the Board of Education, and the leaders in our communities to please BRING BACK PRESIDENT’S WEEK VACATION. Other school systems in Connecticut have made this change (see below), and we are determined to join them.

Please evaluate the schedule and make this happen for the happiness of our families. Whether it means shifting a couple of professional development days or extending the end of school by a day or two, changing the calendar is absolutely possible. This vacation has been in place for many years and a couple of snowy winters should not be used as a reason to alter this.

Please sign and forward this petitions to everyone you know so that the leaders in our community understand how we feel!
