Dear Fremont High School Administrators.
Dear School Administrators,
I understand that the decisions that are made by you are done with the best of intentions and as a way to help our school be better, but some of them end up affecting we students in a negative way. In the past three years that I have been here electronics were not allowed during class time and that was not a problem.
What seems to be a problem is that we are not allowed to use our electronics during our lunch time or passing periods. This is a problem because some family members need to communicate with students in case of personal emergencies. Another reason why I think we should be allowed to use electronics is because we need to let our parents know what time we will leave school since some students are staying after school and we will not always be dismissed at the same time. I really think that you should try to leave the electronics policy as it used to be in the past years. Another school rule that will make this school year harder for us specially seniors would be not being able to be in the hallways during lunch. As a senior I have a lot of work to do and sometimes it will be hard for me to get it done so I would use my lunch time to talk to my teachers and finish my work. With the hallways being closed I will not have that opportunity of getting the help I need and it can put me at risk of becoming behind in my work since it is harder for me to stay after school.
During the assembly we had, Mr. Carson, the Vice Principal, mentioned that the decision was made because the younger students were being hyper or playing around in the hallways. How could that been the cause of the decision if it was the first week of school and he was not giving himself the opportunity to actually see how the students would act? I do not think it is fair for us to lose privileges due to other student actions. If the younger students are the ones causing this then maybe only seniors should be allowed to enter the hallways when they need too. I think this would make everything easier for us.
