It's no secret that COVID-19 has taken the world by storm. Our everyday life has come screeching to a halt due to this global pandemic, including our education. The transition to online learning hasn't been easy at all. Many teachers are not accustomed to online school, and most students are not either. Not to mention, some classes are made harder when taught online. In the MSMS handbook, it says that we should have an environment conducive to learning. However, some students may not have these environments at home. Some students may be facing the repercussions of this pandemic, while also trying to balance a heavy workload. With the stress of this unprecedented solution, it doesn't help to add the stress of trying to keep high grades and maintain GPA for however long this pandemic may last. It is for this reason that we would like to implement a pass/fail grading scale for our classes this semester. At the decision of each student, whole credit classes or half credit classes that started this semester would change to pass/fail, eliminating a lot of unneeded stress for students during this troubling time. While pass/fail may not be ideal for MSMS, it could help to destress students in what is already a complicated and stressful global event. We, as a student body, ardently urge the administration to listen to our please and accept our request.
