Why Can’t Underclassmen Leave for Lunch?

This is a big topic for debate: whether all students should be allowed to leave for lunch or not. Most of the students believe it isn’t fair that only seniors are allowed to leave during that time. But then you talk to seniors about this and they say that it’s a senior privilege and only they should be allowed to leave. But what are the requirements for being able to leave for lunch.

  1. Have to be a Senior.
  2. Fill out a permission slip.
  3. Sign out when you leave and sign back in when you return.

Why does it only have to be seniors though? With the new schedule change, and everyone having the same lunch it takes way too much time to wait in line to get food. If the necessary requirement of being a senior was to change to all grades, why can’t that be? The students that would like to leave would do the same thing as the seniors, signing a permission slip and signing in and out.

If the staff never gives the students a chance then how do they know the outcome of this? Other schools, such as Dumont High School, let all grades leave for lunch. And it seems like that is working out for them because this privilege hasn’t changed for them. I don’t know the consequences of that school if the privilege is taken advantage

If a student doesn’t follow the rules, that individual should get their privileges taken away, not the whole grade. I feel like that’s the main problem: if all grades are allowed to leave there is more pressure on the students. And I feel like the staff will be more harsh and quick to deny this privilege if one person messes up.
