Brenda Abourjilie started this petition to Virginia Beach City Piblic Schools

Parents of students in Virginia Beach, Va.

In 2017 a survey was completed that said we as parents and students want to change the start times of our schools.  Well as you know the school board has opened a public forum to get our opinion of 4 options for this change.  While it seems as though we have a say in this, they have already made their decision and are just doing this to say they offered us a choice.  No one has thought about that single parent just trying to make ends meet and is depending on their high schooler to help out by working and contributing to the home.  What about the child left home alone for 3-4 hours before school starts because mom and dad have to be at work by 7.  What about the families that still sit down and eat together, now they will have to wait until 7/8 to spend time together.   Now the children will be up later completeing homework.  This does not give the students more quality sleep, it just pushes them to get everything  done before midnight.  They refuse to keep the times the same.  Please help me be a voice of reason.  I do not want our students coming home at 6:00/6:30 p.m. just because they wanted to be involved in after school activities.  These board memebers are truly out of touch with reality.
