Israel hoped to become the fourth country to do this.

Beginning on Monday there will be some changes regarding the lounge/café/MTS, bench areas and anywhere outside of classrooms.
During the school day – no student failing any class may go to one of the areas previously mention locations. Students need to get a pass to these locations as they always have, but you – the student – will have to look up your grades and prove to the teacher that you are passing everything. Teachers will not look up your grades for you. Not passing all classes, no pass to a flexible area.
After school – the lounge/café/MTS, bench areas and anywhere outside of classrooms will be completely closed down and not students will be in any of these areas after 3:30. Also, students failing any class should not be in these areas after school at all and will need to prove they are passing all classes when asked by any adult in the building. If you are failing anything, you should be in the media center studying or in ACT. After 3:30 any student still in the building must be in a classroom with a teacher for extended ACT (if available), working out during open hours in the Wellness Center, in the media center on Tuesdays or Thursdays waiting for the activity bus, or waiting for a ride in the lobby/stairs area outside the main office. Or better yet already on your way home. The building is not an afterschool hang out and anyone there after 3:30 will have to leave.
