What school rules have you had that were weird, pointless, or just plain stupid? Elementary: They attempted to ban candy from being on school grounds. HA. Guess how long that was enforced. Day before Halloween, 1st Grade, Principal speaking at an assembly: "YOU MAY ONLY BRING ONE PIECE OF CANDY TO SCHOOL." You weren't allowed to throw small rocks into these large bodies of water that would form when it rained heavily. Because somehow someone could fall in and drown or something. Even though it was about a foot deep. Middle School: Until you stepped foot in your own home, you apparently were still considered to be at school and had to follow school rules and whatnot. Cameras weren't allowed, even after school - In fact, ESPECIALLY not after school. Because (and get ready for something INCREDIBLY stupid) - They thought that it could end up blinding someone. iPods, Cell Phones, etc. were never allowed. Not even at break. Detentions were issued for low grades on schoolwork. You had to have straight A's to go to their crappy dances.
