March 15, 2017 No school

This petition had 640 supporters

This is a petition to change the half day on Wednesday March 15, 2017, to a day without school. Teachers have parent-teacher conferences that day, and I think it is extremely unfair to require teachers to teach for half a day and then hold conferences until past 8:00 in the evening. Furthermore, Fauquier County has had a total of one snow day. Only one! If the first reason wasn't convincing enough, then only using one day for snow should be. In addition, students in high school will have just taken their mid-term exams Monday and Tuesday. Monday is a full day, so that means after testing for almost 5 hours students will then have to continue the rest of their day with their remaining classes. Regardless, my main point of focus deals with making Wednesday a teacher workday/conference day. Ponder the ludicrousness of this schedule for a moment; full day with exams Monday, half day with exams Tuesday, half day for students Wednesday, but a 12+ hour work day for teachers and staff on Wednesday. Sign this petition to change Wednesday March 15, 2017 from a half day to a day off with conferences as scheduled. We can accept there will not be any more snow days this year. Fauquier County already begins school well before Labor Day. I urge you to sign this petition to give the students but above all else,  the teachers a break.
