How might I punctuate the following sentence? Students, stop cutting in line(?)stop throwing food(?)and stop leaving trash.

As your sentence stands, I would punctuate it like this: Students! Stop cutting in line; stop throwing food; and stop leaving trash. However, if I were faced with this problem, I’d be inclined to say, “Students, those of you who cut in line, throw food, or leave trash will be removed from the cafeteria.”
