If a student is going to participate in an event they should have a ride to and from the event because when a student stays more than 30 minutes a staff member from MacArthur has to stay with them. I think it's not fair to the teachers who have to stay late just because someone forgot to pick up their child. The ticket shouldn't be so high price though because sometimes theres accidents where parents get a flat or they can't get out of work to pick up their student.

1. As long as they inform the students of this rule ahead of time, yes.

2. Thirty minutes is plenty of time to leave the event.

3. Why would anyone refuse to leave when they know the rule? If they do, then they deserve a ticket.

yes,in way i think they should give any students who did not leave campus within 30 minutes a ticket.they have to clear out the campus before any events and not just wondering around.

Side: yes

yes, i agree with that rule because i I think that’s a way to protect other people from any danger! I understand that people have necessities but I don’t believe that it will take them more 30 minutes; I think that 30 minutes are enough for people to do what they need.

While this policy might be somewhat of an inconvenience I feel that this it really is in the best interest of the school to put it into effect. It will help reduce vandilism as well as the amounts of fights and other mischevious acts that tend to occur after school events. I feel thirty minutes is a sufficient amount of time to, if nothing else, find your way off of school property. It wont be a problem for me.

I do not beleive that students should receive tickets thirty minutes after a school event, because school is one the safest places for students to stay. By kicking students off of school property, the authorities are forcing children to stay at places that aren't as safe. Examples of locations that students might have to resort to are gas stations, parking lots, residential streets, and maybe even have to walk all the way home. Most all school events end at night. This raises the safety risk to an extreme level. How can police think this is a good idea? It's absolutely rediculous that this policy has taken affect.

Side: No

No I think that this is dumb

I can understand like having to leave and wanting everyone of the property, but I dont think 30 minutes is enough time

and handing out tickets is a bit to drastic

I know as a Cardette that it takes us 30 minutes to do our kicks and do the alma mater and get all of our stuff out of the stands.

I think a ticket is going too far, if someone is still there after the time to leave then just tell them to leave dont give them a ticket for it unless they argue about it and dont want to leave

Thirty minutes is a crazy time. Students need more time to get their rides and have a few minutes of time to talk. It don't make sense how we have to leave the event with in 30 minutes. We came to the event to support it and now the Vice Principle's want us to leave with in 30 minutes as soon as the event is done? It's not right. Parents could have live 30 minutes away from the event. This is like saying after you are don't eating at a restaurant you have 30 minutes to leave the restaurant. It's just 10 gallons of stupid.

Sometimes people are just out of luck and can't get out of the school premises within 30 minutes. It's different when people don't care and just hang around the school for no reason. Instead of giving the person a ticket the first time and then giving them a ride the second. It should be the opposite, get a ride first and next time get a ticket.

Side: No

no they shouldn't because some students probably cant find a ride home and it wont be fair for them to get a ticket for not being able to get a ride home.

Side: No

I think that is a ridiculous because If a students parent is on the one to get them, and is not there within 30min they get a ticket? What if the parent is stuck in traffic? Or what if they happened to get in a wreck? What happens then? Then the parent gets reported to cps? No way jose.

I think that this rule is really dumb because what if there is a serious situation going on why your mom or dad cannot come. And then they try to give u a ticket that is stupid and dumb and thats why i say no.

i think tha 30 minutes to leave is riduculous because it does not give people enough time to get picked up if you cant drive. plans make change or people my get delayed from traffic or family issues.

Its ok if you have things to do after school like tutoring and practice. What they mean is that like if you come out of tutoring at 5 then you have until 5:30 to leave campus thats fair enough i mean if your parents can't pick you up walk to the nearest site and wait for them there!

Where would you rather be if you're waiting for your parents? In school, safe, with other people or by yourself in the middle of the street. There's crazy people out there.

Side: No

No, because some kids have activities after school and there parents can't come get them in that time frame. Also, not every person wants to start walking home right after school. Some would rather hang out at the school and talk to friends.

Side: No

I think they shouldn't give out tickets to students on campus longer then 30 min. because there's many students that attend tutoring or are involved in sport or other organizations so they have a reason to be here late. Also there's students that have parents that work late and have no other way to get home so they have to wait until they get out. The only way i would agree with this is if there being a distraction, but other then that i disagree!!!

Side: No

i believe the policy is ridiculous..

They should make the time limit longer. Because there can be traffic and other obstacles that would prohibit the students from leaving the event.

Side: No

Its not fair that some students must receive a ticket if they are at a school event for longer then 30 minutes. Some students situation may be a bit different then others. You cant blame a student if a parent gets caught in traffic or something along the way of picking them up. I mean if a student has a car and they are there just to be there then thats perfectly reasonable for them to receive a ticket but in some cases its just not fair.

Side: No

i dont think so that is necessary receive a ticket because many students has many things to do after school or maybe they just wait for his family or something lik that... on my opinion this rule is very strict and the school need more coomprention for the students ....thats my oppinion

I beleave that this new police is inconsiderate to the stundent body it self. There are many different reason why a person should have more then thirty min to go home after a event. For one, some people dnt have rides that can be there right on time because of the distance they live from the school, or just pure traffic. so why should the stundent be faulted by a officer because they live out of area.

Side: No

well i understand that traffic and getting a ride may be an issue, but the solution to this problem is really simple... all you need to do is just leave the campus. walk across the street and grab something to eat from the store and wait for your ride there; or something of that nature. Just dont be on school grounds, thats all.

Side: yes

I think that they should not be given a ticket because thirty minutes is not much of a time.Many parents work and they may get late to pick their children up in time. In this situation the students have no other place to go than to stay in the school and wait for a ride after the events.So i think they should extend the time so that students can get more time to leave the school area.

Side: No

A student should not get a ticket if a student is not able to leave an event within thirty minutes. There are many circumstances that can prevent a student from leaving within the thirty minute period. For example, the students ride could be stuck in traffic from an accident, or even worse it may be in the accident itself. In cases like this the only possible thing the student can do is call another ride which will probably take longer.

Side: No

I don't think that students should receive a ticket after only thirty minutes after a school event because there are some parents that are either working, out of town, or do not drive. It's not the students fault if he/she is not able to receive a ride or does not have license. After all, the law is that you cannot drive with out a license or insurance. This will cause more students to drive without a license or insurance which causes another major issue. There will be more tickets handed out for disobeying the law than trespassing on school property. On the other hand, if the student is just there to cause trouble then there should be consequences, but in most occasions, it isn't the case.

Side: No

I say that the school shouldn’t really care about how long the students take too leave unless they are doing something that is not appropriate. Making students leave after thirty minutes will probably not change anything. Some students are still going to stay because it is difficult for them to get home or there pick up may come at a later time. So for that i say NO NO!.
