Julian Cisneros started this petition to D214 Students and Parents and

On March 13, all students and faculty were sent home from District 214 schools. D214 would take this two week hiatus to evaluate the risk of returning to school and if it would be a viable option. Students and staff didn’t anticipate this to be the last day we all saw each other. However, that is the sad reality of it all. The last time seniors got to see friends and teachers, we weren’t able to say proper goodbyes. So we optimistically hoped for prom and graduation but school district decided those would be canceled. 

To be clear, there is no lack of respect for the way the district has handled things or the stay-at-home order. We believe the district has done the right thing in sending students and staff home as early as they did and helping us stay safe. This petition is asking the school district to re-evaluate the possibility of postponing our proms and giving the students one last night with their friends. Rockford public schools and Hinsdale school district are just a few school districts that have announced they are open to rescheduling. All we ask for is for our school district to give students a little bit of hope and a fun event to look forward to during these unprecedented times.

The effect of this pandemic transcends more than just one student body and one community. That’s why we ask all D214 students, parents, and members to sign this and share it. This way the board will be more likely to reopen the discussion on postponing prom. Thank you for your support!
