Approve mental health days for students

Students face a lot of stress during their high school careers; exams, tests, and extracurriculars can, at times, be too much to handle at once. This petition is to acknowledge the student's mental health and relieve them of the stress school can cause for just a couple days each semester. 5 mental health days should be issued to each student to allow them to take a day off, without accountability of what they miss. It is a necessary step to keep students on their academic pathway, while allowing them time to take a mental break. After being given a day away from the stresses of school, I believe, it is more likely that students will have a better work ethic when returning. The 'mental health days' could also impact the stigma surrounding mental health by acknowledging that students aren't alone in their experiences. Support the mental health of all students by supporting this petition.
