No off-campus lunch for some Nyack H.S. studentsPosted: Updated:
As Nyack High School students headed back to class yesterday, some of them discovered they can no longer have lunch outside of school.
Under the recently approved rules, freshmen and sophomores must stay on campus all day.
Some argue that keeping teens on campus increases their safety and cuts down on truancy and failing grades. Others, however, argue that letting the students off campus boosts their maturity.
Tenth-grader Justin Dwelle says it's an unnecessary measure. However, some upper classmen disagree.
"Personally, I think it's fair because the older you get, the more freedoms you get," says junior Evan Glover.
Nyack High School joins nine other public high schools in the county who keep their freshmen and sophomores on campus all day.
