Oconnor Student started this petition to O’Connor High school
I have been a student at O’Connor for 3 years now, and this has to come to an end! Why is it that our school won’t allow us to wear shorts, when other schools in the district,(NISD), can? Why is it that in 90+ degree weather we can’t wear shorts? We live in TEXAS. Honestly the only real reason I’ve heard teachers and administrators say as to why we can’t wear shorts is “It causes a distraction in the classroom” REALLY? No one is going to stare at someone legs to waste time, that’s what our phones are for. No one is going to get turned on from looking at someone’s knee. Like come on. I honestly wouldn’t have a problem with this if O’Connor was an indoor campus, but walking from building to building, some farther than others, could take up to 7 min, and in jeans we start to sweat. SMELLING LIKE SWEAT is more of a distraction than someone’s knee, calf, and ankle. Please, this needs to come to an end. SENDING SOMONE HOME because of a rip in there jeans, or for simply showing off your calf’s and knees is ridiculous. TEACHERS sending a kid out of class for the same reason is a waste of VITAL time in the short 45 Minutes of class we have. It takes on average 12 minutes for a student to get back to class after sending them to the office for a piece of cloth that isn’t “school appropriate”. This is not 1950, and O’Connor is not a private school. This is 2019, the world is accepting of many different things that would have gotten us killed 100 years ago. LET US WEAR SHORTS! I get that schools are about discipline and equality, but it’s only a piece of cloth. If the tempature is above 80 let us wear shorts, and if it’s not at least let us wear them on Fridays. STUDENTS “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

If the tempature is above 80 let us wear shorts, and if it’s not at least let us wear them on Fridays.

Junior at O’Connor high school, and I want to stop sweating so badly caused by the extra 16-24 inches of cloth on my legs.
