Do you wish that you could wear your jackets and scarves everywhere? Are you sick and tired (literally) of not being able to do so? If so, SIGN THIS PETITION! 

Imagine that it is a cold, wintery day. The temperature is 12 degrees Celsius - you're freezing! You are all bundled up in your jacket and your scarf - only to find the second that you step foot inside a building, teachers rush to nag you to remove your layers of clothing. Yet, by doing so, you're instantly more vulnerable to catching a cold.

The school claims that they have implemented this rule to "ensure that your body temperature stays constant" because apparently "the room temperature is warmer than the outside temperature, so jackets and scarves are not required inside." But how does simply standing under a roof determine whether you wear jackets or scarves? Shouldn't it be our choice whether we wear them or not? After all, everyone's bodies are different, and everyone's body temperature varies differently. It should be up to our own judgement whether we wear our clothing. 

Hundreds (or close to that number) of students get sick every year because of the implementation of this clearly redundant rule. If we can eliminate this rule, then the health of our students can finally be protected. Together, we can prevent our student community from the flu. Together, we can create justice for our people, striving to ensure the health and safety of our school society. 

Together, we can remove the "no jackets, no scarves inside" rule.
