Petition Regarding the Interdorming Policy
We are working hard to have thoughtful discussions with the administration.
Dr. Gibb has said that "[discussions] will not happen until those who have made personal attacks on Mrs. Perrenoud, some of them hiding behind the anonymity of social media, demonstrate their commitment to the values of this School by making a formal apology... And while it may have been limited to a handful of students, as you point out there were  students following the comment thread, and not one of them replied to these comments and told their classmates to knock it off." While our individual choices have power, our choices we make as a group reflect even more strongly. We should see this as a place to hold our peers accountable for their actions and influence each other positively.
Searching for an innovative and respectful way to conduct this apology, we thought we could send a good message by creating another petition to address our commitment to respectful dialogue as responsible members of the community. Though many of us may oppose the new Inter-Room Visiting Policy, using profanity and shaming our administrators does not help and reflects badly on our ability to be those who can join discussions of change, even if it is only a minority, for the reasons Dr. Gibb stated.
The administration will consider change if we have MORE THAN 329 students to sign this. By having more people sign this petition, we show that we promote respect and trust in the community, and that we want to create healthy dialogue among different members of the community. We also acknowledge that we did not act soon enough to address the wrongful comments. Furthermore, by signing this, we show that we promote values of respect, empathy, personal integrity, and good citizenship, which we strive to live by everyday. We do not condone the behavior shown in the previous petition. We are proud to be a part of this community, and show our support for the ideals our school stands on. Guided by each, we seek better paths.
