Mary Hill, manager of the Belleview Square Subway, had seen enough.

For the previous few weeks, several Creek students going to the Subway during 4th period were disrespecting Subway’s workers, their customers, and other students.

The behavior went so far that Creek students were banned from the restaurant during 4th period.

“We had one kid ‘pants’ another,” Hill said.

She added that, unfortunately, the boy whose pants were pulled down was not wearing underwear. The whole ordeal was in full view of three of his female peers.

Hill also added that they had to excuse two students from their restaurant during 4th period the day of the interview on Nov. 3.

She also described students throwing used condoms at one another.

Students also did less obscene actions such as cursing and leaving trash behind. Near the beginning of school year, students apparently were vaping in Subway’s bathroom.

The ban was decided in mid October; the events in question at Subway occurred between the beginning of the school year and the ban.

As rude and obscene as some students were, students this year are no more disrespectful than any other year, according to Assistant Principal Kevin Uhlig.

To the Subway administration, their expectations of how high schoolers behave in their business comes down to common decency.

“Be respectful,” said David Haile, Subway district manager, via phone call. “At the end of the day, don’t do what you wouldn’t do in your own home,”

Haile also mentioned the local Subway offers deals to students, so why repay the chivalry with crude and profane behavior?

This behavior prompted a ban of Creek students in the restaurant only during 4th period.

The offenders are likely Freshmen or Sophomores, as mostly underclassmen have an off period during 4th.

Uhlig is concerned people in Greenwood Village could have their opinion of Creek change when they see this behavior.

“If they go to an area business… and they don’t pick up their trash, they don’t push in their chairs, they’re cursing, they’re stealing, they’re fighting. It’s embarrassing,” Uhlig said. “They’re representations of the Bruin community.”

Uhlig acknowledges most students do not behave this way.

“The vast majority of Creek kids are wonderful students, wonderful kids, wonderful citizens, and that’s our expectation,” Uhlig said.

Junior Yon Rubins has been to this Subway numerous times. The staff have let him go several cents short on his sandwich, and he appreciates their hospitality.

“It is so disrespectful and disgusting that they would do that to such nice people,” Rubins said.

Rubins supports the ban due to it being the restaurant’s right. He was disappointed to hear about the students’ behaviors, but not surprised.

“It’s their business, they can do what they need to keep it clean,” Rubins said.
