Principal Steve Straessle told KARK-TV, “We put a sign up on the front door to not only alert new parents to the policy, but to remind people why we do it,” said Straessle.

Some parents were upset, commenting that kids who forgot their lunches might be hungry. Principal Straessle wants to assure everyone that won’t happen because they know how to problem solve.

Some students even appreciate the rule, like senior Patrick Wingfield, who said, “It makes me think for myself and not rely on other people to do things for me.”

Straessle said the rule was made to benefit the students. “It’s simply to help boys avoid the default switch of calling mom and dad when things don’t go right to bail them out.”
