West Valley High School, as part of the Anderson Union High School District, has a rule that many students don’t agree with.  The hat rule is a rule saying that students are not allowed to wear hats on school campus or even have them on campus.  If you do, then the school administrators take it.

Over the past few years there has been a few rebellious acts against the hat rule; some took it in a polite manner others, not so much.  A group of 3 people tried respectfully getting hats back by talking to the principal and the school board with a presentation to try and bring hats back to the school. That was ruined when a couple of students vandalized the school saying “Free the hats” and drew some inappropriate images on the walls.

The school has become more strict to the hat rule over the years and the more people push it, the more strict the school gets. The hat rule actually is district wide in the Anderson Union High School District, not just at West Valley High School. Not just students have been getting mad about the rule, parents of the students are getting mad about it too because most the time they are the ones that pay for the hat or they get mad because their child worked to get that hat and the school takes it just like they own it themselves.

The West Valley High School board decided to keep the hats until the end of the school year and students decided to rebel by wearing hats more and keeping hats in their backpacks so that when one hat was taken they can just throw on another hat. Student Jesse Kavanaugh protested the hat rule by duck taping 12 hats onto his clothing and had one hat on his head and he said  “Hats show character and and independence like shoes and shirts so why can’t we have the right to wear hats on school campus?”  This rule has made students go from thinking West Valley was a great school to a school with rules that are unfair to students and parents in the community.
