WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (WPEC) –Students across Florida have started petitions calling for their school districts to cancel classes the day after Halloween.
The petitions are on the website change.org.
There are several in Palm Beach County.
One started by Martin Orozco says, “We need more days off in Palm Beach County, and a it would be great to have a day off after Halloween. People will stay up late and be tired the next day, which won’t improve our learning.”
Orozco’s petition already has more than 8600 signatures.
In St. Lucie County there is also a petition on the same website asking for the day after Halloween off. That one has more than 97,000 signatures. Similar ones are also online for Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.
