So close the lunch

It was interesting to read the recent article about the pedestrian hazard on Perkins Ave. caused by hungry students.

The school spokesperson stated there is have a "closed lunch" policy, and many years ago when I attended Sandusky High School the same policy was in effect. A student either purchased lunch or brown-bagged it. One would get into big trouble for leaving the building without authorization. Why is this not the case today?

Is no one monitoring the exits and entrances at lunch time? If someone leaves, don't let them back in, and charge them with being absent. A simple solution to a perceived problem: Enforce the existing policy! If this persists, someone needs to re-define what a closed lunch means.
