Guadalupe Castro started this petition to Principal Chris Gilmore

It's been a crazy morning. You woke up late and are rushing around to get everything ready for school. The bus has left, your parents are at work, and you do not drive. You have two options: stay home and ask your mom or dad to call and excuse you, or be a few minutes late to your first class. You decide to go to school since you have responsibilities to take care of. Upon arriving at the front office for a pass, they tell you to go to Sweep. Now you have to stay in there for who knows how long, even if your parent called in excuse your tardy. Now you are missing class time and are regretting coming to school, especially since you cannot do your homework there because computers are not allowed (computers are where teachers have begun to assign homework nowadays). 

Sweep, although is a place for tardies to "serve time", is counterproductive. It takes even more time away from the student in class. It hurts the students more than it helps them. This petition was made to eliminate Sweep and create a more positive and encouraging program that promotes punctuality and forgives those one time offenders at Westwood high school. This petition can make a difference by illustrating how much of a problem sweep is to Principal Chris Gilmore.
