Allow facial piercings in Lawton public schools !!!!!
Hi, some of you may know that I've been working to change the policy on facial piercings in the Lawton Public Schools district. Facial piercings are considered a distraction, implying that it can hinder our learning. This rule has not been well received by the student body and even some administrators. When students are forced to remove their jewlery at school in an unclean enviroment it makes many of us prone to infection. The plastic jewlery that is allowed also harbors bacteria that can make someone with a piercing prone to infection. Administrators spend their valuable time chasing students for a small piece of jewlery rather than being able to focus on more important issues. If this rule is lifted it will take a small amount of stress off students and administrators alike. I've been through my home school asking for signatures but soon learned that there were many more people that would like to sign. It would be physically impossible to reach each and every student so this is my best bet. I'm fully aware that this isn't a huge change, but we've got to start somewhere. Please take the time out of your day to sign and share this, every signature matters.
