New Reinforcement of Hat Rule

Faculty members start enforcing the rule on hoods and hats
New+Reinforcement+of+Hat+Rule

Students walk into MHS every morning with a hood on or a hat; some even keep them on throughout the school and the day. Administrators and teachers ask these students every day to take their hoods or hats off, some students comply and others don’t, but even the students that do comply will put the hood or hat back on most of the time. Administrators, teachers, and other faculty members have been told to report if they have informed a student to take a hood or hat off to Principal Mr. Upton, as Upton has informed faculty and students that this is a safety issue for everybody in the school.

“It is first and foremost about safety, we need to be able to quickly identify students and people in our building and make sure that everyone who is here is who is supposed to be here,” Principal Mr. Upton said.

Mainly, what Upton is trying to say and help students and visitors understand, is that hoods and hats inside the building can be a great danger to the students and faculty at MHS because they can obscure the vision of the cameras and make it to not be able to identify people as well if there is an intruder or somebody who is not supposed to be in the building.

“I’m not a big fan of the enforcement of the hat rule, they say the cameras can’t see your face when wearing a hat but if you ask me they spend a lot of money on the cameras for them to not be able to see my face.” Sophomore Gavin Cross said.

“I just don’t see the point, to me it’s not that big of a deal to wear a hat, it’s just a hat.” – Freshman Quinn Shouse said.

Many different students have a broad spectrum of opinions on the new reinforcement and faculty members being more strict about this rule, but at the end of the day it all just comes down to dress code and safety, no matter how much a student might not agree with the rule or support it.
