, students will no longer be able to bring any type of snacks to school unless it is with their lunch. At that point, they will ONLY be allowed to eat inside the cafeteria. Administration has decided to take this action for several reasons. Too many students are walking around the campus eating chips throughout the day and throwing their trash on the ground. We have spoken to students daily and asked them to dispose of their trash and to be careful with their drinks when inside the gymnasium after lunch. Many have not complied with our requests. We have placed several trash cans outside and inside the foyers to provide students with a place for their trash. Many will not use them. Our amazing auditorium is filled with trash each day after bus dismissal from students eating snacks. Aside from just not taking care of the campus by disposing their trash, the large amount of sugar intake each day is causing many students to be extremely hyper throughout the day.
Any students observed with snacks outside the cafeteria will be asked to surrender the snacks and at that point they will be properly disposed. If a student refuses to hand over their snacks, they will be sent home for refusal to abide by school policy. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy, please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.
