It seems as though the Barrow County high schools have been in a buzz about recent procedure changes at the Apalachee campus per AHS principal Glenn Wilson in a video message to the students at the beginning of the second semester of the 2012 school year.
In the video, Wilson lists out the following minor and non-negotiable changes in procedure: students must be appropriately dressed for school upon arrival to campus (they should consult the student agenda of the dress code if needed), there will be no electronic devices seen or heard between the hours of 8:20 and 3:20 however, music can be played during the student’s lunch block (faculty and staff will ask students to give them their electronic devices if seen or heard at any other time), and finally students are to remain seated during their lunch period except for trips to vending machines or the bathrooms.
While all of these procedures are outlined in the school agendas, it is up to the principal as to how they are enforced. As a recent graduate of Winder-Barrow High School, I can attest that I have spent four years abiding by these county policies and procedures.
