Jeannette towle launched a petition because she wanted to be able to see her friends this Spring Break.

"I did just transfer here in January, so a majority of my friends go to different schools, so it's a bit upsetting that I won't be able to spend my senior spring break with them this year if this doesn't change."

She's not alone.

Her petition has gotten more than 800 petitions so far.

"I even saw a parent on there last night that was upset that her son wouldn't be able to come home when she was going to be on break," said Towle.

Towle said that she's going to keep trying to get it changed.

"Being up here in Lubbock, we're far from everything. I know it's 17 hours to Panama City Beach, another 15 to Padre, so if we're willing to make those drives just to have fun and relax, to take that away from us it's really upsetting."
