Fort Lee High School students will once again be allowed to have lunch off campus after officials initially revoked the privilege, northjersey.com reported.
Students in the 11th and 12th grades will be permitted to go out for lunch as long as they get consent from their parents, and swipe identification when coming and going from campus. Newly appointed Interim Superintendent Paul Saxton made the change after a meeting with student leaders upset over the change.
The short-lived off-campus lunch restriction came as a surprise to many students when they showed up for the first day of classes. Saxton cited safety concerns and reports of students coming back late to class.
School officials were expected to announce the new lunch policy at an assembly Thursday.
