Dear LCN: Welcome Back

Brenna Filbey, Co-Editor-in-Chief, Features Editor



It’s my senior year, people. Honestly, time flies. Anyways, WELCOME BACK LCN!!! With a new year, comes new school rules. The back packs, the dress code, the hallways, the sweeps, and the list goes on. However, it’s important to remember that these pertain to everyone.


Hallways: Traffic stop in the making

People PLEASE walk with the flow of the hallway. I have come to a complete dead stop in the middle of the hallway at least twice already and it’s only Wednesday. Seriously, even in the hallway near the HOCO bulletin, it’s not necessary to stop. Yes, you’ll bump into people, but apologize and move on. It’s not a big deal and the rest of us just want to get to class. If you would like to talk to your friends, there are plenty of less crowded spaces to congregate in. For example, the hallway between the office and the LGI.



Every time I hear someone complaining about this rule, it’s the biggest eye roll of my life. In all four years I’ve been here, this is the strictest they’ve been, but seriously the administration is just enforcing the rules. Plus, those small reusable bags from Lululemon or anywhere like that, they don’t count as backpacks. Yea, it does add a little difficulty to things but it’s not that big of a deal.



They started this last year. Really you’re not going to get in trouble if you get to class on time. If you were talking to a teacher or other staff member, get a pass and you’re “sweep exempt”. Also, Poljanic sometimes gives out a sweep pass. Meaning, if you get swept, but you have the pass and choose to use it, nothing happens. No detention, no scary consequences.


The Dress Code:

Please follow this. Ladies, I know it’s slightly unfair, but they changed the legging rule in our favor, so that’s a small victory. If you get dress coded, you see the dean (Mr. Poljanic), and you’ll be “forced” to change/ call home. Seriously, the dress code is in place because no one, as pretty or cool as you may look, wants to see EVERYTHING.
