Dear Grapevine, I have asked multiple times. And unfortunately I’m not surprised you are choosing to ignore my inquiry. Again, what type of training do varsity level coaches undergo, if any, to ensure professional and ETHICAL behavior. Please forward to AD as necessary. There clearly is overwhelming concern with pay to play type of behavior across many sports here. Thank you.

In the south hallway adjacent to the gym 2 in HSE there are ALWAYS people vaping there. Even though there are cameras and the JCP only rule has been enacted, there are still people vaping EVERY DAY. Why can’t there be a monitor standing in this hallway at all times or just to close the hallway??? This is a serious prblem and must be addressed.

Why is the weight lifting class in HS East only for students participating on a Shen sports team? That’s not fair. Everyone should have a chance to take this class. The weight room was built for the benefit of all students. Shen athletes have other designated times to use it – during pre-season, after school, etc. and many use it during their free periods also. Students that are not Shen athletes should have a right to be in this class also.

A.  The fitness center is open every day before and after school for students who do not participate in athletics.  Also, in the spring semester, students who are not athletes are enrolled in the class.
