Dominican High School Takes Additional Precautions
By Jessica Wierzchowski
Being one of the most important landmark decisions of the year, Dominican has decided to hire security personnel in order to prevent further crime on the campus. Planned to go into effect immediately, security will be posted in front of every door within Dominican, including the janitors’ closet and the locker rooms.
With the lock down that took place last month due to a “mysterious man with gelled hair” caused the increased stress and fear of detention. The additional security facility was beginning to wonder where the minds of their students had gone. Tensions only increased after a stream of vandalism was discovered last week and the culprits refused to turn themselves in.
The school network has also been hacked, so that teachers experience the Barracuda Web Filter for every site instead of the students. While this is an ongoing problem, Mr. Kern is currently struggling to restore the filter to its defaults. Also, earlier this year, Mrs. Ash has noticed that some of her chemicals from her lab were stolen. These chemicals were found a few days later combined to create a virus, which caused an epidemic to spread through the school.
With the latest situation at Mayfair, Dominican authorities decided that teenagers simply could not be trusted to remain out of trouble. An angered Mr. Geittman spoke out, “if they cannot follow the Dominican Core values now, when why should we continue to assume that they will later?”
Known for leading with innovative school spirit ideals, the guards hired for Dominican are specially trained to suit the students’ needs while wearing heavy armor. Completely equipped with swords, maces, polearms, or bows, these knights take their jobs seriously. While advocating nonviolence in an academic atmosphere, the knights hope to serve as an example for students and adults for all ages. “Let’s just hope these knights are equipped with chivalry” commented a student.
After a long consideration period of a few minutes, the knights also decided to bring in one of their most trusted female advisors, the Iron Maiden, in a effort to finally settle the problems within Dominican. Considered to be one of the most strict, nonviolent ladies of our time, the Iron Maiden plans to lower the number of detentions as more students would follow the rules.
