Recently, because there was a number of problems at lunch and a few fights before spring break, new rules were put in place exclusively for the A lunch period. After you get your food, the only times you get up are when your cleaning up your tray, going to the bathroom, and leaving. No trash or trays are to be left on the tables after lunch. Wandering around in not permitted and you get dismissed from your tables by the teacher, one row at a time, and not by the bell. “I think it’s a good thing sometimes, because sometimes people don’t get to sit with their friends if the tables are crowded and it’s good because there are less people walking around,” Freshman Sarah Perrotta said.

The students are led out with the ones near the cafeteria entrance being led past the cafeteria exit and the ones near the front doors being led out the way most people were previously going. As with any big change, people are going to feel differently about this, some may like it, some may dislike it, and some others might be in-between, or wouldn’t care. “I mean I don’t really care because the same things are the same and I think they should continue it until people actually know how to act,” Freshmen Amelia Boullerjohm said.

In contrast, Freshman Amy Membrane said, “I think it’s ridiculous because the only people who cause the fights and cause the trouble should get the consequences and not the entire a lunch, and then they should take the people who caused everything and maybe move them to a different lunch.” Amy also pointed out something important about the exit procedure “it also causes a lot of students to be late to class.”

It makes sense for this to be an issue, especially for students that are going upstairs, or are taking the longer route out of the cafeteria. It has been expressed by Administrators that rules may be altered in the future due to behavioral improvements.
