There are a handful of students at Gunderson High School who break some of our rules every week. These students may have to attend Friday school. Friday school is a place kids go to on Fridays if they break certain rules. It is held in a different teacher’s class each week, in which that teacher has to watch the kids for 3 hours.

The most common ways students get Friday school are being tardy to a class 5 times, ditching, or just causing a disruption in their class or outside of it. Kayla Campos, a Freshman at our school, has gotten Friday School 4 times.

Campos also explained that the teacher running Friday school uses a check in sheet to check in when a student gets there and check out when they leave. The rules are no talking, no eating, and no phones. Campos said that in all the Friday schools she’s gotten that the students do all of those things, and the teachers didn’t really say anything about it. “You would probably see girls doing makeup, people talking, and just eating,” she said. Campos considered Friday school fun.

Gunderson’s intentions in giving us Friday school aren’t so that we have fun, but so that we know not to break the rules again. The fact that a student believes it’s fun might be an issue on its own. “They say no talking, eating, or phones,” said Campos, “but everybody does it so [they’re] not really rules.”
