The cards Driver Christopher Pierce 18, died Friday one week after the Accident.

Only 717 of Wood county a 3,544 High school students eat lunch in a school cafeteria on an average Day according to Marsha Lewellyn a county teacher. A when you Send a child to school in the morning you expect that child to remain at school until its time to come Home. And yet because of the open lunch policy a majority of the kids Are leaving school grounds for lunch a Lewellyn sad. A How Many parents gave the school District permission to allow those students to leave the school grounds and whose responsibility is it when kids get Hurt while they Are under school supervision a she said. Wood county superintendent William Staats said the school system is not responsible for students who leave the school grounds especially if they drive. A there Are some parents who done to recognize their own parental responsibilities. They want the school to do that Job a Staats said. A we can to be responsible for every High school student on every level. We re not responsible especially when the parents themselves have not tried to curtail Staats said it would be too costly to change the open Campus policy because schools would have to increase their food service staffs by one third hire monitors and lengthen the 36-minute lunch break and subsequently the school Day. A it would present another whole set of problems that we Are simply not prepared to Deal with a he said. Baby Sitter suspect in boys death Tery in Abraham. Fri friends May Call today after 5 .
