Students at Nevada Union High School will be experiencing a new rule this year. The school is implementing a closed campus policy. New Principal, Dan Frisella, says that there a number of behaviors that moving to a closed campus will address including alcohol and substance abuse. According to Frisella a majority of suspensions are around activities that occurred off campus.

Frisella says that the school also receives numerous call from neighbors regarding unsafe pedestrian behaviors as well as questionable driving activities. Parents are also concerned about activities that may be occurring at student’s homes that are close to campus but unsupervised during lunch.
School administration included a variety of stakeholders in the decision making process.

The biggest logistical challenge for the school is going to be feeding the entire student body in a timely manner.

Feedback from staff, most students, and the community since the announcement has mostly been positive.

Frisella isn’t blind to the fact that students will still try to leave campus. Lunch is treated as any period on a students schedule and if they are caught off campus a student is charged with a cut and assigned a two hour detention. the penalty increases with each additional cut.

Wednesday is the first day of school, but it is a minimum day so the real impact will not be felt until Thursday.
