Save Track and Field at Floyd Dryden

Many of the students and Floyd Dryden Middle School in Juneau, Alaska are very distressed at the decision to cancel the Track and Field season this year because of the unseasonably cold and snowy weather. We do not think that the season should be canceled. Some of the students have been looking forward to the season for the entire year, and we feel that the season should go ahead, despite unfavorable weather conditions. Last year we ran indoors, and we ran in the snow, and we can do it again. There are many people who would be out on the track despite the weather conditions if the season were allowed to go ahead. The purpose of this petition is to call attention to the fact that the students of Floyd Dryden want their Track and Field Season! Spread the Word!!!

We are Alaskans and should be able to handle some snow. The students would participate in Track and Field do so because they want to which means that they are probably up for running in the snow. What the school boards that decide don't realize is that maybe they think that it is to dangerous but they don't give students a chance to speak. They do what they feel they want to not who it is going to affect. They should ask the students opinion before they decide that they are going to cancel an entire season of anything. Personally I think that there should be at least a couple student on the school board to speak out for the kids this is affecting instead of just adults who it really doesn't matter. It saves time for an adult because they don't have organize things. If there was a student they could speak to the school board and tell them that they are being stupid by closing a season just because there is a little snow on the ground.
