Allow KHS Students To Carry Backpacks On Campus
The administrators of Kokomo High School recently released a rule stating students are not allowed to carry backpacks around campus due to ‘tripping hazards’ and we are instead told to put them in lockers.
The lockers given to the students of KHS are not nearly wide enough to fit backpacks in, and many are located inconvenient locations for majority of the students. Adding on to that, we are only given 5 minutes to go from one class to the other, so in these 5 minutes we are required to go to our lockers, grab what we need for class, use the restroom, and make it back to class in time.
Kokomo High School sent out the notice of this new rule only a WEEK before school started. This means most of the students have already bought new backpacks and school supplies that are meant to be carried in said bags.
By signing this petition with your first and last name you are stating you wish for one of the following changes:
1.) To completely rid of this rule
2.) To ask administrators and others involved in the making of this rule, to instead create a guideline for the size of backpacks and bags, instead of completely ridding of them.
Note to administrators and others involved: If this petition is not taken seriously or fairly, be prepared for students to protest no matter the consequences.
