I am signing this petition because all LAUSD students do deserve a longer Summertime. All LAUSD students attend 10 months of school each year, and only 2 months of vacation isn't really enough to rest from hard work, studying.

I'm signing because it affects students and their families in many ways. Our kids are rushing back to school in the middle of blistering temperatures, when many classrooms don't have functioning Air conditioners. Can you imagine the heat that our kids experience in LAUSD's outdated bungalows? The heat penetrates through these manufactured classrooms that have no proper insulation. Another reason is many of our kids come home with nosebleeds and headaches because they are forced to play out for recess and lunch during the hottest summer days! It also robs parents of quality time they would like to spend with their children, like camping trips and days at the beach. LAUSD didn't try to even meet parents half way in this matter!!!

Kids should not be back so soon. Lets stop worrying so much about test scores, and more about our kids' wellbeing.
