Kelly OConnell started this petition to Cairo-Durham School District

This petition is to make the Cairo-Durham School District’s board of education, administration and staff aware that they allow/assign entirely too much summer homework.  Summer vacation should be just that, a break from the regular school year.  It should be time to allow children (especially teens) to work, play sports, vacation/travel, spend time with friends and family, etc.  

Summer vacation is also a time for kids to broaden their horizons.  Working and traveling are great experiences that make for a well rounded person.  Summer camps, whether they be academic, sports or leisurely based are another opportunity for children to learn.  The school year is always jammed full and our kids should be commended for juggling all that they do throughout the year.  They deserve a break from the daily grind, it’s good for the mind and soul.  

Please consider your summer homework requirements for 2020!  It would be nice if teachers would work together to offer one assignment for the summer, rather than one assignment from each teacher.  Excessive summer homework will only be taking precious time away from our families.  Let kids be kids and let parents enjoy their kids, while they are still kids.  Thank you!
