ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - The whisper-only policy in the Aspen Elementary School cafeteria is apparently over.

The principal and assistant principal who had been blowing whistles at students talking too loudly have turned monitoring of the cafeteria back over to teachers. Parent Teacher Organization president Alyssa Genshaft told The Aspen Times (https://bit.ly/1ybyd2h) Wednesday that they weren’t given any rules about how to run things and everything now seems back to normal.

The administrators took over supervision of the cafeteria to give teachers more time to do their work. Parents weren’t happy about their quiet crackdown, saying the children felt intimidated and uncomfortable.

Principal Doreen Goldyn said she and the assistant principal were simply trying to teach the children good manners and keep the noise down in the small cafeteria.
