St. Michael's Student Body started this petition to Head of School

At the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, St. Michael’s Catholic Academy went online to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Fortunately, we were able to reopen in October, but by being in online school for 2 months, we lost a lot of valuable education. The students attending St. Michael’s have not been prepared for finals and are being set up for failure. While our system definitely worked better than that of many other schools, it was still a worse experience and education than what we would have received had we attended school in person. Because of this, many other high schools in our area have cancelled their final exams, but St. Michaels has refused to do so. As much as I love St Michaels, I believe that by having finals, students are pressured into studying information they do not know. This has already caused much more stress than usual for finals, and on top of everything else going on, it is hurting both students’ social lives and academic performance. Because of this, I have even heard of students considering going out-of-state or even wanting to catch the virus to avoid finals. Personally, I don’t believe the system should put so much value on finals, for I believe that at a time like this, it ultimately pressures students into doing things they shouldn’t do. Thank you for your time.
