Butler Students started this petition to North Carolina General Assembly

On October 29, 2018 the students and staff lost Bobby McKeithen to an act of gun violence on campus. For emotional relief, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools made the decision to take the day off for students and staff of Butler High School on October 30,2018. On May 8, 2019 staff, students, and families were informed that Butler High School did not meet the requirement of mandated school hours and must add an extra day to their calendar making June 10, 2019 Butler's last day of school instead of June 7, 2019. Even though October 30, 2018 was not required as a school day for students and staff, many people came to campus to grieve with each other and speak to crisis counselors. Our principal, John LeGrand, has tried for months to get the mandated hours waived for Butler. Please support our cause in getting this make-up school day waived by the North Carolina General Assembly for the shooting and passing of Bobby McKeithen at Butler High School.
