Molly Unger started this petition to Natick School Committee

As an athlete, to be specific, a 3 season athlete (an athlete who does a sport every season), I find myself struggling to manage everything that comes with high school. Such as the homework, staying after with teachers and making up things I've missed. This brings me to my next point. When I happen to miss Physical Education, I am strongly encouraged to make it up as it will affect my grade if I don't (I would get 0% for that specific class I missed). These makeups are held after school at 2:30. However, like most sports' practices, they're around 2:45. PE makeups usually take a lot longer than that and conflict with sports practices. PE and sports should not have any competition. I am both very passionate about my grades as well as sports. I believe that students who do a sport in the semester that they take PE class, shouldn't be obligated to do PE makeups. In addition, it shouldn't affect their grade. However, this is not an excuse for students to randomly skip PE class. The exception for this if the student has an excused absence. Natick High School has always encouraged its students to be healthy and if anything, students who didn't do a sport would be inspired to do one.
