School District Bans Unannounced Visits

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.
 
The district says 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 athletic 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.
 
Parents will need to make appointments to see teachers and administrators. Parents also must send notes the day before in order to pick up children.
