NJ School District Bans Unannounced Visits

SUMMIT, N.J. (AP) -

Students who forget lunch or homework will be out of luck in one New Jersey school district.

Summit schools are stopping unannounced visits in the interest of safety. They say as many as 400 people visit Summit High School daily. In a letter to parents, school Superintendent Nathan Parker writes many visitors are parents dropping off lunches, homework, musical instruments and equipment.

Parker writes that eliminating the visits will make the schools safer and teach students to be accountable. Students who forget lunches will be fed in the cafeteria and given IOUs.
