Letter To The Principal

Dear Mr.Johnson,

This Letter is on the issue of closed campus, in my opinion this should

not even be an issue. County High Scholl students should be able to go out

during lunch, we have a right to choose what we pay for and we have the right to

seek a comfortable environment. I have very strong reasons to back up my opinion.

If I want to not wait in line for at least five to eight minutes for

food I must skip the trip to my locker and lag around a heavy bag which has my

first, second, third and fourth hour books in it. This brings up another

serious problem in Haslett schools; room! In four corners it's practically a

mosh pit after every hour, this is a whole separate problem which needs

immediate attention. Once I finally get my lunch I have a second much harder

task to tackle; finding a seat. The Cafeteria is way over capacity and simply

can't handle the amount of people that is must. After I have everything I can

start eating, by this time I have wasted away twenty minutes of my precious

lunch period. Mr.Johnson, this is just not a suitable lunch arrangement.

I must mention of second problem with lunchtime, this is even more

pressing than the first. Lunch Prices have been growing drastically and with no

reason at all, this could mean the school is pressed for money so you look for

the simple solution and make us, the consumers, pay more. I have heard that

this large amount of extra money is going towards better quality food; get real

folks how can you improve the quality of fries and pizza? And what can the

students do about this? Packing a lunch could solve some problems but this is a

major inconvenience to most. With today's busy life style people just don't

have the time to pack lunches. Instead we students are forced to deal with over

crowded lunch rooms and incredibly unfair prices. Mr. Johnson this is just not

suitable for a highly rated school system such as ours.

I believe that when a young adult is denied much of his or her freedom

it has a rather disappointing outcome. Put your self in my shoes for a short

time, if you were not allowed to do anything much more than do homework and stay

in the house day and night what would you do? I would abuse my freedoms the

second and was able to and probably destroy my body in the process.
