Lunch Rules

Keziah Street

As you may know, there are a few lunch rules. Rules like no doordash, no leaving campus, no being in the parking lot, and no walking around outside the building. These rules are lowkey strict and should be changed.

People doordash because of the food here. If there were better food choices, maybe people wouldn’t doordash. It shouldn’t be a problem because it is the student’s money. It’s not like the doordasher is disturbing class because it’s being delivered during class.

Obviously, students leave campus at lunchtime. I’m not 100 percent sure that only upperclassmen can leave or no one is supposed to without getting checked out. Students should be able to leave to get food and they could possibly run a few errands. I guess this is a rule because administrators are responsible for us students. We should be able to walk to stores and restaurants near the school. The majority of students know to come back and if they don’t then that’s their problem.

I think this is a rule for our safety. But it shouldn’t be a rule because most people are in the parking lot just to chill. Some students are in the parking lot to get things they need out of their cars. Also to leave which they should be able to do.

Honestly, who wants to just sit around at lunch? So we should be able to walk around. When my friends and I walk around the teachers usually make us go back to the front. We don’t go off campus just laps around the building. If students are allowed to be by the barn, then we should be allowed to walk around. I’ve also seen some sports players practicing, and if they are allowed to do that, then we should be able to walk. We do nothing wrong, so why shouldn’t we be allowed to walk around.

We interviewed students on how they felt about the lunch rules this is what they had to say:

“Doordash isn’t putting us in any harm so why is that a rule?”- Caleb Mincey, 9

“People don’t eat lunch because its nasty here and we can’t order anything”- Makala Long, 9
