Alexander Abuhoff started this petition to Montclair High School Students

At Montclair High School, there are hundreds of athletes participating in dozens of sports. These students are required to find a balance between athletics and academics, which can sometimes be challenging as both are extremely time consuming and require immense dedication. 

Montclair High has recently decided that they will no longer permit students to "Opt-out" of Gym class for the third quarter of the school year even if they participate in varsity athletics.

The opt-out has proven to be very beneficial to student athletes as it offers them time to get some homework and studying done during school as our athletic time commitments outside of school often affects our ability to complete school work done at home.

Without the continuation of this option, student athletes will not be given the opportunity of a mid-day study hall and instead have to complete work at night after their practice is finished which will often keep them up late and affect their sleep schedule.

All in all, the opt-out option is necessary for students participating in athletics as it benefits their education and promotes a healthier lifestyle.
