Longer lunches at Alameda Senior High School
Petition Background (Preamble):
The staff and students feel that the cut in the lunch period should be reinstated. After discussion with many of the staff members, and several students, 35 minutes is simply not enough time to have lunch. Standing in the lunch line at Alameda one volunteer commented, "It took 20 minutes just to get to the counter to purchase lunch, by the time I was able to sit down and eat, I had 5 minutes to eat my lunch."
Other High Schools in the district get between 40-50 minutes for lunch.
The circumstance under which our request should be granted are that the staff and students often go to class without a finished meal or finishing a meal.
We feel that the 35 minutes allowed to get our lunches, and get back to class is stretching us a little thin in order to get a good lunch in.
We do however, understand that the students of Alameda need to be more responsible with getting to our next class on time. There are several benefits to allowing the staff and students more time to eat lunch during the school day.
After doing research, other schools in the district are allowed more time to consume their lunches, why shouldn't we?
