High school wants to keep an eye on students in parking lot

DOVER/SHERBORN

What the heck are those seniors at the high school doing in the parking lot? That's what Dover-Sherborn school officials want to know.

The Dover-Sherborn Regional School Committee is looking into buying security cameras to monitor an area of the high school parking lot used by seniors.

Committee members said at a recent meeting they have concerns because the parking area is a good distance from the high school and canít be monitored.

This becomes an issue because seniors had the privilege last spring of leaving campus during their study hall period, said School Committee chairman Ellen Williamson.

The committee has yet to discuss renewing the privilege again this year. But if it were granted to students, Williamson said, it would be important to have some way of monitoring their activity in the parking lot.

The committee has asked Business Manager Richard Mathieu to gather information about security cameras.
