Nicholas Sasaki started this petition to Hunter Jr. High School

Hello everyone, The School of Hunter Jr. High has put in some knew policies to do with Binders, Phones, and enforcing dress code to a point of insanity, The knew Binder Policy states that after the first time a student does not come to class with a binder they are warned, then a phone call home with the second "offense", moving to Lunch Detention, to after School Detention, to Overnight Suspension and a Parent Meeting, to 1 DAY Out of School Suspension, and Finally after the 7th "Offense" A Parent Meeting and ADDITIONAL SUSPENSION. With the Binder Policy it is making students miss class and learn LESS because of a BINDER. These Consequences can be found on the Hunter Jr. High Handbook link on their website under student links page 24 of it.

The Knew Phone Policy States that students must put their phones away from their first bell at 7:30 A.M. to their final bell at 2:45 p.m. which includes LUNCH time and Passing Period. They state that "Cell phones create distractions to the learning environment when not strictly regulated." though cell phones do cause some distractions to the learning environment there are lots of distractions at all times in the learning environment example: Teacher's telling personal story's, students interacting with one another even if its important and talking about serious topics, and many more. another statement they made was " Cell Phones are often lost, stolen, or damaged when used freely at school." which is pointless in stating because anytime you own a cellphone it is at risk of being lost, stolen, or damaged. The Cell Phone "Offense" Consequences: First "Offense" A Warning, Teachers may also take phone away until the end of class. Second "Offense" Phone taken until the end of the class period and/or sent to the office until the end of the day. Third "Offense" Phone taken to office. Parent/Guardian must pick phone up at school. Fourth "Offense" Overnight SUSPENSION/ Parent Meeting. Students will no longer be allowed to bring a phone to school. That is the "Offense's" for the Phone Policy. These "Offense's" just cause issues for students and their parents when it all can simply be avoided by integrating phones into the classroom. The Phone Policy can be found on Page 19 of the Student handbook link on their website.

My Third and Final statement against the school is their crazily enforced dress code. While talking with a student who asked to not be named stated that " The new dress code cloths are highlighter colored. The Shirts are neon orange and the pants are neon yellow." This causes bulling of students due to the ridiculous colors of the clothes. Another student was brave enough to tell me her story of what had happened at the Hunter Jr High. She was having that time of the month and she had bled through her pants so she wore her jacket over waist to hide it and she was wearing a shorter shirt underneath which had resulted in her getting dress coded when she got dress coded they made her change her shirt but she wanted to keep the jacket to cover the blood stain but they wouldn't let her so she had to wear both the neon colored orange shirt and neon colored yellow pants which left her very embarrassed to have to wear both the neon shirt and pants. I do want to thank her again for sharing her story with me and allowing me to share it with everyone to help fight against the school and their policies. Dress Code Policy found on Page 15 of their student handbook link under student links

In conclusion Hunter Jr. High is obviously trying to be a 100 school but at the cost of their students sanity and feelings. We just want to be allowed to wear what we want and use our phones at appropriate times and for love of nobody is distracted by shoulders it is the least problem at schools shoulders are shoulders and they don't matter.
