Morgan Shuhart started this petition to Students and

HEY PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND STUDENTS!!! The Los Gatos High School Board is mandating a five-day return to school; in addition, they have determined the exact bell schedule without any consultation with school personnel or students. Unfortunately, with this new schedule, effective May 3, we regret to inform you that the Wednesday workday is going away. Instead, you will now attend class, whether in-person or online, five days a week. Also worth noting is that it will be more difficult to access office hours or individual tutorial sessions, and all advisory lessons must now be completed on your own time. This is taking away from students and the one day in the school week where they could easily access assistance from their teachers during school hours. We, as students, are losing a day of less stress by adding on more hours staring at a computer screen or going to in-person classes. Wednesday was also the day that our school took extra time to deep clean the classrooms. If COVID is a concern of yours, this idea of taking away the deep cleaning day may be worrisome. Consider this as another reason to sign the petition.

Teachers, how much more education do you really think your students will receive given this Wednesday? Is this taking away from your time to grade during the school week, or prepare for the coming classes or provide individual tutorials for your students? Parents, are you comfortable for your student to begin attending classes 5 days a week? Do you think this will add stress to your student or to your family as you adjust to the new schedule and worry about the impact of COVID? Students, how do you feel about no longer having Wednesday to get some fresh air and work at your own pace to get caught up on class assignments and homework?? Is this adding more stress and worry to your life? Ask yourself this: Is it really worth changing the schedule for the last 4 weeks of school? Do you really want to go through more change than we already have in the past year? If you want to keep Wednesday as a workday for yourself, we need to speak up! Another way to make a statement is going to Los Gatos/ Saratoga School Board Meetings and adding your input! If you would like to join UPCOMING BOARD MEETINGS check out the link!
