Daniel Pereira started this petition to Principal of Richmond Hill High School Debi McNeal

In the 2017-2018 school year, the Senior class enjoyed the privilege of leaving their final class 5 minutes early. However, that class decided to abuse this privilege and because they did so, the subsequent class did not even have a chance to experience this privilege.

I believe it is unfair that just because the previous class abused a privilege, our class must go without it. After all, it was hardly the students at fault if they were leaving early; teachers had to have been responsible for releasing students even earlier than they were already permitted. Otherwise, these students would have been caught and punished individually. Instead of looking into the problem and trying to resolve it, the school decided to rid the privilege. To remove the privilege entirely without attempting to regulate it better seems like a rash decision.

No adult would willingly accept a punishment due to a colleague's misconduct. So why, as the school's young adults, should we? As the year comes to a close, I believe that we should be given the chance to prove that we can be responsible and that the early dismissal privilege should be reintroduced to the school. If it is successfully integrated, then generations to come will enjoy it.
