Filed under Opinions

Let me get one thing straight: this is not another story complaining about why we have a dress code. Having a dress code is necessary to maintain a certain level of professionalism at school. That is understandable and in most cases, preferred. According to many teachers, the problem lies with dress cod...

Every school day it’s the same format. First bell rings, minute bell follows, final bell concludes, then of course the morning announcements.

With foods ranging from low grade, reheated pizza to small, unsatisfactory chicken, logic would dictate that students would pay the bare minimum for the bare minimum.
