Ever since us students were Kindergartners at Woodbridge School District, we always had to wear Uniforms. However, these Uniforms are really strict and need to either be less strict, and/or be removed. Us students understand that the Uniforms were mainly put in place to help stop bullying from other students. Which was a good idea at the time, but now it is distracting us from our learning environment and us students want to take action against it. First of all, when students are out of uniform typically, the teacher needs to talk to the student to go receive a collared shirt or pants from the office. This makes the student waste around 15 minutes of education time in the School District. During this time, the student could miss out on something very important in class, and will either be stuck not knowing what to do in class, or having to stay after school to catch up with the important work in class.

Next, wearing a belt and tucking in your shirt should also be lifted from the uniform policy, officially. Being forced to tuck in our shirts doesn't make sense at all, we understand that wearing a belt, can help pull up your pants so that students pants aren't always falling down, but what is the significance of tucking in our shirts? We were told that tucking in our shirts was made to make us look smarter. However, that's it. It doesn't help us with education at all. The worst part about both of these things is, is that students will always be written a referral when not following these policies. The students should not get in trouble for not following these rules! It can hurt the chances of them getting into a good college when they get so many referrals, over simply not tucking in their shirt or wearing a belt. The student could have very good grades, but unfortunately will not get into a good college because they get referrals for not following the uniform policy.

Furthermore, Students should be allowed to wear Jackets inside of the school. Especially, during the Winter. During the Winter, the School Buildings, get really cold. The point of Jackets, is to help keep our bodies warm! Did you know, that there was a study by the New England Journal of Medicine where they found out that kids without wearing jackets did not catch colds, viruses, or any other bacteria-related illness by not wearing a coat in the Winter. However, they caught the viruses by being in close contact with another person in the Winter! In school, we are all very close to each other, wearing a jacket can help stop the spread of diseases in the school! If we catch a disease, we have to stay home from school. Which makes us lose valuable education time!

Finally, wearing what we want at school can help Socially Awkward kids make friends! When a socially awkward kid wears a certain clothing with stuff they like on it, another student could notice it and they can chat with each other. Eventually, leading up to a powerful friendship! I hope you can sign this petition to help get rid of strict uniform policies in Woodbridge School District!
