Colorado Students Getting Banned From Businesses Because of Bad Behavior
Students at Cherry Creek High School are no longer welcome at some local businesses due to unruly behavior, FOX31 reports.
"Business owners and managers have called us to complain about students using foul language, damaging property, treating employees disrespectfully, and showing little regard for other, non-student patrons. Some have taken matters into their own hands and either restricted access or even banned our students from entering," said Principal Ryan Silva in a letter to parents published by the station.
According to the station, the majority of the issues occur at the nearby King Soopers, although Silva didn't specify which businesses were banning students in the letter. If conditions don't improve, the school will close its campus during the freshman and sophomore lunch hours.
Cherry Creek isn't the only Colorado school struggling with its students' attitudes. In Northern Colorado, TikTok trends have students vandalizing their school bathrooms — one Loveland High School student even stole an entire bathroom stall.

In Broomfield, where people are also vandalizing bathrooms, another TikTok challenge even led to the cutting down of a fully-grown tree in Quail Creek Park. The City is asking the public to report similar incidents by emailing the Broomfield Police Department (BPD) at firstname.lastname@example.org.

However, Silva doesn't think that his students are acting out because of TikTok. Instead, he believes their frustrations are due to class disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
