Sherwood Introduces Hall Sweeps

by Russell Irons ’19

 In an attempt to minimize the number of students late to class, Sherwood has instituted hall sweeps. After the late bell rings, teachers will lock their room for the first and last 10 minutes of class and not allow any students to enter class while administration and security round up any students not in class on time. The students will be taken to the cafeteria and punished in accordance with the SHS Tardiness policy. The punishment could be a warning, detention, or referral depending on the number of infractions.

 The school will be broken into designated “zones” and the sweeps will be conducted randomly. This move is in line with Principal Eric Minus’ goal of limiting student tardiness and absences, and the change is likely targeted at those who wander the halls to get out of class.
