Why this petition matters

Started by Addison Walton

With the recent events of the Bengals v. Chiefs game, we request that the Monday following the Super Bowl be taken off the FCPS schedule. Several schools in Cincinnati, Ohio, have already taken this step. Additionally, February 14th is home to many other holidays, namely Valentine's Day. The Bengals are the closest NFL team to us, giving a sense of unity in the community, and potentially a huge celebration. If this happens, many will be staying up late celebrating this historical moment. To avoid academic distraction and make for the most efficient teaching and learning, there should be no classes these days. Not to mention all the other holidays that happen that day, including but not limited to:

Clean Out Your Computer Day
International Book Giving Day
International Epilepsy Day 
League of Women Voters Day
Library Lovers Day
Meal Monday 
National Call in Single Day
National Creme-Filled Chocolates Day
National Donor Day
National Ferris Wheel Day
National Have a Heart Day
National Pet Theft Awareness Day
National Women's Heart Day
Oatmeal Monday 
Pet Theft Awareness Day
Quirky Alone Day
Race Relations Day
Read to Your Child Day
Singles Awareness Day (S.A.D.) 
World Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day
World Sound Healing Day
