Upperclassmen students at PVHS speak out against the closed campus lunch rule. Students felt that if given the opportunity, they would go grab food somewhere near the school.

Some people believed that closed campus lunches are better, but others prefer open campus lunches.

PVHS Senior, Kaitlin, had her own thoughts about the closed campus rule. “I prefer to have open campus lunches because I could go grab something good to eat.”

Kaitlin also stated, ”I would like to have open campus lunches because it could allow me to go somewhere close to eat, and get better food than the food in the cafeteria.”

In contradiction to what Kaitlin thought, Sam Stawnyczy, a PVHS Senior, thought that closed campus lunches are better.

Sam stated, ”I feel that closed campus lunches are better because bringing your own lunch is better overall. Bringing your own lunch is cheaper.”

Lastly, PVHS Junior, Luis Vaz prefered to have closed campus lunches.

Luis stated, “I don’t prefer to have open campus lunches because I just eat the cafeteria lunches anyways.”

These students had some ideas why the closed campus lunch rule was enforced.

Kaitlin stated, “I feel that several people ruined the privilege for everyone because they abused their time during lunch by leaving and not returning to school for the rest of the day.”

Lluia, a PVHS Senior, also stated, “I feel that people ditched when they had open campus lunches, and that is why we do not have it anymore.”

From a different perspective, Luis stated, “I think there is closed campus lunches because the school wants to keep us safe.”

Sam Stawnyczy came up with an idea to solve the problem of students ditching or being late to class.

Sam stated, “I think that if students at PVHS get to go off campus for lunches, there should be enforced boundaries of where they cannot go past. For example, I could only go somewhere walking distance to get something to eat.”

Lastly, from a health standpoint, the Public Health Advocacy Institute established basic guidelines for open and closed campus rules. “The district can create base guidelines establishing an open campus, but it can additionally allow the principal at each school the authority to make provisions or decide under certain circumstances whether or not to allow off campus privileges.”

Overall, most of the upperclassmen students at PVHS are frustrated with the closed campus lunch rule.
