An announcement and email was made Feb. 2, 2017 changing DHS meal time rules.
“As of today, there is no eating outside of the cafeteria,” Assistant Principal Julie Villano said. “You will need to be in the cafeteria while you are eating breakfast and lunch. You cannot sit outside in the hall while you are eating. Thank you for your cooperation. It takes all of us working together to keep Dow High at a top notch level.”
At DHS, during the 2015-16 school year, students were not allowed to eat outside of the cafeteria during breakfast and lunch. Things changed when principal Steven Poole and assistant principal Julie Villano became part of the DHS administration. Starting the 2016-17 school year, students were allowed to eat outside of the cafeteria during meal times as long as they cleaned up their trash. As of Feb. 2, things have changed. Students are no longer able to take food outside of the cafeteria at meal times.
“It was the administration that decided,” Villano said. “There was numerous times that we asked the kids to pick up their trash and they didn’t.”
