Three New Policies Start Year
Story by: Jake Knuth and Jenna Anderson
Recent school policies may be new, but they shouldn’t come as a surprise to students.
Principal Michael Trimberger, said he has already noticed a difference in tardies this early in the school year.
“I was in the hallway at 8:01 a.m. and only saw two people and both of them actually had passes,” stated Trimberger.
One of the major reasons why the tardy policy was restructured this year was the fact that multiple companies and factories in the Sheboygan area reached out to Trimberger over the summer concerning graduates they had hired in recent years. According to Trimberger, these business leaders were saying the biggest problem with these new workers is getting to work late.
Junior Alexis Nitsch said, “I think its good, but I don’t think it’ll necessarily motivate people.”
“I think it’s unreasonable. Kids are still going to be tardy,” said senior Chelsea Resch.
The second biggest change for this school year is the enforcement of the school’s dress code.
Trimberger stated that it also is being enforced more intensively this school year.
Sophomore Selena Luna-Anderson said, “More people followed it more last year, than this year.”
The final major change for students is the new study hall structure in the Commons and the E & I rooms.
Senior Jenny Lee said, “I like it and think it is really wise and it is better than the past.”
The Lake Breeze will report about the new study hall structure and E & I rooms in greater detail in the Oct. 24 issue.
Athletic Director Chris Hein said, “The tardies [policy] seems to be improving...not sure that the dress code is working yet.”
