ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - An online petition has been circulating through social media, requesting that Rapides Parish public and private schools cancel classes on Friday.

The petition is hoping to receive 2,500 signatures.

The reason? Parents and kids are saying that students need a day to rest after all of the sugar-highs and Halloween fun on Thursday night.

The question is, if the petition reaches the signature goal, will the schools comply with the request to cancel class?
