of the Sentinel Konah
Laws and rules are very easy and hard to come up with. One has to decide whether or not something is morally wrong. There are also laws that require you to do something to help better your community. Many rules have been created with thought and reason, but others, not so much.
There are rules that are so weird that nobody really knows why they are in place. Either they are too old to matter or they are just plain crazy. From a law in Minnesota that requires men to wear shirts to laws in California requiring a pediatrician's permission to film a month old baby, anything could illegal.
However one topic is very prominent when it comes to specific rules: school. School rules and regulations are meant to help the learning and development of students, but even schools have some weird or unknown rules.
I bet many of you didn't know that you must wear your shoes at all times during the school, so no lounging. Another rule is that all publications must be reviewed by the school. The school can destroy anything that is deemed against an academic mission.
Now some of these rules may not seem that odd, but I bet you didn't know quite a few of them.
One of these is that you are not eligible for MHSA (Montana High School Association) events if they turn 19 before midnight of August 31 previous to participation of the last school year.
There are also a couple unknown consequences for being caught doing something bad. You can get up to as OSS (Out of School Suspension) for being caught with your phone when you're not supposed to have it.
Another consequence is if you are even around drugs on school campus and you don't exit within a reasonable amount of time, you will experience disciplinary actions.
With many rules that affect our everyday lives at Sentinel, we have to be aware. Rules that aren't completely enforced are still rules. But when you don't realize that a rule is enforced, then you could end up in huge trouble. SO don't be too up-tight about different school laws, but remember to be aware.
