Mosley Advisory Council Meets on Lunch Issue

The push to close local school campuses after a Mosley High School student was killed while returning from lunch may be loosing steam.

The school's advisory committee held an open forum Monday evening to discuss the issue.

About 50 people were on hand for the hour-long meeting and most agreed a closed campus would not solve the problem of students rushing back to class.

They suggest improving traffic flow and possibly adding extra time for lunch.

The group will meet again next month.

Walt Abbott, a Mosley Advisory Council member, says, "We will not have a vote on the open or closed campus policy. We will merely pass it on to the Bay County School Board. The ultimate decision will be made by the principal.”

Meanwhile, the mother of 17-year-old Emily Tuthill, the young girl killed on the first day of school, is still pushing the idea of keeping all students on campus during the lunch period.
