Off Campus Lunches

If I could change one thing about My High School I would choose the lunch rule. The rule I would like to change is not being able to leave during lunch.

If the school district is worried about students getting into car accidents during lunch hours then they need to consider that it can also happen while students are driving to and from school.   Whether the district acknowledges it or not, students’ safety on the road is not the schools responsibility, but the students own responsibility, and should be treated as such. CCISD should consider allowing students...
