SHERMAN, Tex. -- Sherman High School has adopted a new policy for students after a rumored fight sparked an investigation on April 25.

A letter was sent home to parents this week explaining what events had taken place. It says to further protect the students, starting Monday, May 5th, seniors, sophomores, and all students who eat breakfast at school will remain in the cafeteria until the first bell rings.

Juniors and freshmen will report to the auditorium until first bell.

The principal says no fight ever occurred, but the change in policy is to better protect students in the future.

    How did this thread get on Kingston? Wasn't that Billy dude with the Don King hair do a Kingston Student? Man, I want my kids to go to school there! Back to Sherman, I think the highschool should buy a water cannon and blast those off campus that can't follow the rules. That will give a whole new meaing to "saggin'". LOL!

    Please don't make me laugh, those of you that say you have a dress code, I have seen your dress code, I don't mean wearing uniforms either, but these baggy pants, pants with holes in them,these shirts and stuff that these girls wear, the Superintendent and the school board really needs to look in on this

    Please!! Those of you who want to take your kids out of Kingston school, Please do, Kingston is growing by leaps and bounds and is one of the best schools in the area academically. The smart normal kids would only benefit from a little weeding out of those who whine about every little thing they can and have immature kids who don't want to be in school anyway.

    I have a 9th grade son who attends Sherman High School. I was first informed about the incident at school while talking with patient. I called the school and was told by the receptionist that the situation had been taken care of and that the students were sent on to their next period. I believe that parents are over reacting. I can understand where they are coming from but for goodness sake have confidence in our school administrators. They took precautions to keep our children safe while they investigated the rumor. Whether there was a lockdown or not they did their jobs by protecting our children first. Notice came later and that should be okay with parents as long as they kept our children safe. Be proud of our administrators and give thanks to them for a job well done. I say hats off to Superintendent Hambrick and Prinicpal O'Neal and all the rest that assisted in keeping my child out of harms way! I say protect my child FIRST, then notify me of the situation AFTER its under contrl

    Another student: The "REAL WORLD" has rules. If you can't follow the RULES IN HIGH SCHOOL, then your not gonna make it in the REAL WORLD. Most if not all businesses have a dress code policy and when they do a background check and look at your school records, they will see that you failed to comply with your high school dress code and they WILL ASK ABOUT IT. If half the student body does end up dropping out, then it's going to be that much harder for them to catch up. If your not that "half", then why are you even concerned? HIGH SCHOOL is not hard people, I wish I was still in it. Try paying bills and maintaining a household on your own. Quit complaining and go to class, obey the rules, and graduate. IT'S THE EASIEST THING YOU WILL EVER DO, BELIEVE ME!!!!!

    I have an IDEA!!! How about leaving the innocent kids alone and start cracking down on Gangs! We DO have a gang problem at Sherman High. Stop ignoring it stop punishing the ones who can't tell one gang from another!

    What are IDs going to help?? Are you kidding me? Have you seen them? There are many kids in this school that would make fake one's because our IDs are the most simplistic piece of plastic that i have ever seen. By the way most of the students DO carry their id.

    alright... whoever anonymous is that posted at 10:15. I want you to go to school at Sherman high for one day and THEN you can say that they need to start buckling down on the students. You don't know what happens here, and you don't have a right to say that we need a dress code. We have one. Maybe you mean uniforms, but that would only cause greater problems because of kids that are rebellious and wouldn't wear it. If they suspend them, Sherman high would be missing over half of the student body. How is this supposed to be preparing us for the real world?!

    This school is getting absolutely ridiculous. All of the new rules like separating us in the morning are not helping us at all. If everything was "only rumors" last Friday, why are they making all of these new rules? The only thing they got out of that scare was that students were calling their parents, and that cell phones were bad. Well, if the school had not lied and said that their calling system was broken, we would not have had to call them in the first place. Next year instead of making the school better, they are spending a quarter million of your tax dollars on a fire wall for phones, and a card swipe on each entrance, so that we are no longer students, we will just be a number in the system. Sounds like prison, not a place for me to learn.
