Ava S started this petition to NVUSD School District

For the past four years I have attended American Canyon High School, I have come to a realization that our female bathrooms are not stocked with feminine products. Those of us who use feminine products are asked to go to the nurses office to obtain these products. As a student who has asked to go to the nurses office, many teachers ask what the problem may be. Which is humiliating to have to explain to a male teacher, but it is also sometimes challenged with "can't you hold it". While the trip to the nurses office may be short when in the A building, those of us who have a majority of our classes in the D building can take 10 to 15 minutes for our trip. Reason being the distance between buildings, then finding an open bathroom and the distance going back.  Although many teachers don't mind these lengthy trips, it is taking away from our learning time in class. Speaking of losing time in class many girls go home due to the lack of menstrual products being in a convenient area. 

The reason why having menstrual products in a convenient area is so important to those of us who attend class is because it is not something we can control. 49% of our student body is female identifying. It is a natural thing that our body does every month. What we are asking you to do is to sign this petition to show the school district that there are many of us who care about this situation. Not only would having the menstrual products in a bathroom be convenient but it would also save many of those who use these products from being shamed or humiliated. This would also save time for the students to learn and keep many period product users in class.
