Tell any stories of stupidity at the hands of your school faculty. Sorry if this ahs bene done I checked the search bar and saw nothing.

I think the stupidest thing my school has done was we got a bomb threat (thats what my father informed me the news report said, they told us it was a drug raid and yet we saw the essex county bomb squad around the ubilding and the dogs were specialized in weapons).But yea we got a bomb threat and they locked us up in the rooms on Lockout (a procedure, basically the equivelent of code yellow. we lock all the doors and the day proceeds, no one in or out)

Our principals and teachers have started patrolling the halls with walkie-talkies.

We aren't allowed to use the bathroom for the first and last 20 minutes of class.

After 15 absences, we are kicked from the class(es) we missed.

In one of our computer communications classes, sorting and taking out the recycling is worth 10% of your mark.

Senior prank last year was a fake bomb threat, so we stood in the parking lot all f*cking day.
During exam weeks, we only have 2 exams per day, but you have to have your parents sign a paper to leave after them (or stay for another 3 unnecessary hours).
My principal recieved a subpoena for perjury, and no one seemed to care.
We had a snow day in which it didn't snow.

we get 3 absences for first quarter, 4 for asecond, 4 for third and 3 for fourth. if you go over those numbers, you get a mark called "E" in which case you need to make up absences or fail for the year.

kinda stupid if you ask me. you get hit with one bad illness and fail the whole yaer.

my teachers have always had walkie talkies

Yeah, my school too. Actually, the whole district, really. But it was like... -30 or something. And there was an ice storm or something the night before. We might also have to make up a few days for the snow days because our district is stupid and only plans for one snow day. We've had four, and need to make up three.

One of our assistant principals walks around the school with a megaphone. In the beggining of the year, you can find an old tall lady walking around with a megaphone in the lunch room basicly acting like a traffic updater. "You might want to move to this line where there's fewer people!" and nobody ever listens.

You can't use cell phones during lunch. LUNCH. I was standing in line with my phone out and a teacher tells me to put it away. IT WAS LUNCH! Honestly, that's some of the stupidest crap I've heard, and none of the students understand the cell phone policy at all.

When my school spent a ridiculous amount of money on Astroturf for the football field, they celebrated by renting a helicopter and hiring 4 professional stunt men to jump out of the helicopter with parachutes. I hate School Sports, I don't think there is a better way to waste Tax Money.

Also, not too long ago we were expecting about an inch or two of snow, and everyone was talking about how there was going to be a snow day. It was too warm for snow, and we had rain. School was still canceled.

about 70% of the teachers in my school signed a petition saying they wouldn't go back to work after the summer hoidays unless our principal was fired.... never happened.
oh and our school makes us learn entirely through irish, which is a dead ****ing language!! pisses me of no end... but there's a high court case being taken against the school at the moment, demanding we learn through english

We're not allowed to were baggy jeans, hats, gang related stuff but then there was a day that all the female teachers dressed up all gangster (BAGGY PANTS, HATS) that just makes no sence to me at all and the male teachers and priciple dressed up in dresses im sure were not allowed to cross dress
#22
my school has come up with the best idea ever. not. i hate my district. anyway it's called INTERVENTION PERIOD you have to get you planner stamped by all your teachers if you are passing, if you have all the stams you get an extra 20 min of lunch, if not you set in a class for 20 min to "get extra help" but theres never enough time anyway... usless and id rather just go home 20 erlier thanmore lunch.

A close second is the ADVISORY PERIOD. its an extra 40 minute period every other week in which we "learn study habits" and "lern how to be more accepting people" you know that kind of BS. but in reality non of the teachers do anything so we just sit there for 40 minues.

Making us go to school that should clearly be a snow day, or having a snow day when the roads aren't bad at all. I'm not complaining about the latter, but it was still a stupid decision.

football team gets all their equipment for free from what i can tell. we win the superbowl in this sate pretty much every year. when it comes down to the football team everyone knwos. everything else no one cares. boys football and girls hockey is all that matter.

the football team gets leather jackets, embroided with school patches and their names for free at the end of the season.

the only reason we still have music is because the football team needs their marching band, and i think we all know it. toherwise the music dept. would be gone by now.
im in the orchestra violin) there and no one knwos we exist. we bene around for like 8 years now and we throw a fundaiser and the only people who show up are family. people think we are better than the marching band but becauwse of that we get thrown away. marching band goes to floorida for a week every year. we're trying to coe up with sweatshirts for everyone to get out of the funraising money we got this year (from one fundraiser). we've never done anything. everyone in the high school orchestra has been qwith it since the teacher started 8 yeasr ago (he taught second and up, i was in second. lucky me). everyone in there is a senior short of maybe 5 people, so the original orchestra is pretty much done this year. we dont get ****. -.-

I guess there were a lot of things when I was at school. There was an incident with a man with a shotgun running around the field at the same time as someone set off the alarm randomly during a school inspection. He claimed he was only shooting ferrets, so the police let him go.

the players dont have to pay for them anyway. anyone else hat gets something special, like a field trip or some sort of thing like that pays. they get it handed to them becuase they are the football team.

youd need to go to my school to understand the anger most of me and my friends bear towards people in the football team. -.-

I'm sure my schools basically the same, except our school is based around sports in general. Most of the time, they hold charities or car washes(for volleyball teams.) They won't just hand out free leather jackets, unless they take it from the taxes which may not be far from the truth.

You are extremely lucky. We go every 3 or 4 years, and it's always to Flordia. Next year we're going down to Orlando. But Hawaii?! That would be the greatest trip ever.

woudlnt doubt it if they took from the taxes. cause theres no way in hell that the football team needs to hold fundraisers.

at the most id say they take from the mony they charge to get into the games but idk if they actually do charge any

Or if people like the team so much, someone really rich donates money every year to the football boosters so they can get all the nice things.

My superintendent (also the principal) gives a message everyday after the morning announcements and asked the students to give him slang to say during his messages so he could "connect with us". Needless to say, he said things that a teacher, let alone a superintendent, should never say in their place of work. I'm not saying it was called for because I do actually like the guy, but he was asking for it.

We got a school dog a year ago, all it does is piss all over the floor. It gets scared at anything, and we like to make really loud noises around her, gets really scared. The teachers think it helps cheer us up. It's on the front page of our school website, we're all convinced the teachers care more about it than us. Here's the link to the website, and the fat guy is our principal.

My school did something really stupid. Basically they planned to turn the football field into a small stadium, with half a dome and everything, in the end costing about 1.5 million bucks. So they ended up raising a substantial amount (from parents and community and the like), and last minute the school pulls the plug on the idea.
Pretty dumb.
