Rylie Hegarty started this petition to IACS Administration

There has been a lot of talk lately about taking away the half-day Wednesday. Many students have expressed negative feelings about this. Taking away our half-day Wednesday would severely impact student life around IACS. Mental health issues have been at a high because of Covid-19. We rely on this Wednesday to reset from the week and process everything. A study from the American Psychological Association has reported that 81% of Gen Z have experienced more intense stress during the pandemic. Many people have appointments and jobs that happen after school on Wednesdays. 

Students also rely on these Wednesdays as a time to get school work done because the way this school is set up makes it so that projects from each class line up at the same time and can become stressful. Half-day Wednesdays make it so a lot of students can succeed in school. 

For parents, this is also a huge hassle for them. They have built their schedules around transportation and if this happens it will cause a lot of problems for these families. 

This is a petition against the idea of half-day Wednesdays being removed from the IACS schedule. IACS higher power has been making this decision without hearing the genuine voices from IACS students. Those who have signed below are against this and are willing to speak up

We also should also have a say in the new schedule. Students should at the LEAST be able to vote.

IACS higher power: hear our voices. We are people too and deserve to have a say.
