GBN Students started this petition to Glenbrook North and

As you know, the world right now is in chaos and in ruin. The recent events include the whole COVID-19 Pandemic, Capitol riots, the bombings in many states, and more. However, In the Northbrook Community, there are more pressing matters. At Glenbrook North High School, in the last 4 years, there have been 2 suicides. Last year there were bag searches done by teachers in response to bomb threats within the school. Our district has done nothing to change what is going on.

They are telling us to use the recourses that we have always had to try and make it seem better. What they don't realize is that it won't do much. It's not fair for us as students to have to go through any of this at this age. We have finals coming very soon and our school decided to change anything about it. With the recent events, no one is able to focus on finals, let alone focus on classes. So many kids are in a really bad place right now mentally and emotionally, and that changes should be made in order to ease the minds and emotions of the student body. 

The teachers try and make it seem less stressful by telling us they are always there. But half if you email a teacher for help they will either not help at all, tell you to see a counselor, or report it to the deans. With everything going on we could really use the support of others and some sort of relief to show our district that this is a serious matter that shouldn't be taken as a normal day with all the same help we would normally get.
