yes, because caring for the safety of the school is a bad thing. My h/s (even when my sister drove before 9/11 occurred) had a "unauthorized vehicles will be towed" sign... they're not going to let someone use spaces they could get money for (our school made us pay) Aren't a majority of school shootings kids from the school/people the school would know? Kudos to the school for actually giving a shit about their student's safety.
I'm sorry, but I disagree wholly. I agree that the school should try to prevent the shootings, but they're being a bit extreme about it. At my school, only the main doors are ever open, the classroom door are always locked, more often than not, I have to walk all the way around the school just to get to class because they won't let me park near the door. Plus we've got two armed policemen walking the school at any given time. It's starting to look more like a jail than school. All these new "security measures" are way too extreme as I'm sure OP would testify
That's right, my old school had a public footpath running through the middle of it. American schools are far too security consious.
schools don't go into yellow lockdown for one car with an expired parking permit. plus at least some teachers would recognize you if you just graduated. i call shenanigans!
When I graduated as valedictorian and went back to visit my school many months later, my problem was that all of the teachers, hall monitors, administrators, etc. recognized me, so I couldn't get away with wandering the halls, as I probably could have if I had been some random student.
