Noheliz Torres started this petition to ROCHESTER CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT

2020 has been an incredibly hard year for students and teachers. With a global pandemic going on, food resources/hand-outs being closed down due to less supplies and our district being in debt, It’s no doubt that the pandemic, and social isolation has caused a huge toll on the mental health of tons of students.

As a student who goes to School Of The Arts, it’s hard enough to not be able to see my friends and experience high school, and enjoy my major but the constant workload of homework, projects, and essays on top of having to work a minimum wage job to support my family because my dad who lost his both jobs due to COVID-19, school is incredibly exhausting and stressful. Even my therapy has gone virtual. I have many links I can provide to support my statement on how online school has literally worsened several students’ depression, suicidal thoughts, self-esteem and anxiety.

I ask that you all take the time to really think about your students and teachers and give us a break for the rest of the year. Even education unions in the UK have asked to shut down their schools to give everyone a break. Please consider this, and put your students first. I believe this break could also help with our districts debt. Thank you for your time.
