Due to safety reasons, the Galileo administration has decided to close the gate on Bay street during lunch. In the past, the school has had issues regarding random strangers walking onto campus. The staff has considered closing the gate for many years, but because recently many alumni had just been walking into the school, it made the administration feel that having the gate open put students at risk. With this move being made Galileo’s administration believes the school will be a much safer place.
Vice Principal Ms.Chen explains the reasoning behind closing the gate. She says, “The idea [why we need to close the gates] is that [before the gate was locked] anyone right off the street can walk onto our campus which poses a safety threat.”
Some students agree with the administration and believe the gate needs to be closed. Senior Jason Liao said, “I feel like this is the right thing to do, it protects the students.”
Although students feel better about this change, there are other students who disagree. Senior Win Xiao says, “I’m locked out of my own school, I think that’s a negative thing.” Another Senior Adeel Shaikh adds, “I feel like there’s a lot of people leaving the school and it gets crowded, it’s a negative thing”.
