Desert Pines High School has a very short time period for students to eat lunch.

The lunch lines at school are unorganized and go on for miles and miles. So by the time lunch is served the bell rings to go to the next class. Some students feel rushed to finish lunch quickly because they do not want to be late. Eating meals fast is not healthy at all, in fact it could double the risk of being overweight.

Some people might say students want longer lunches to hang out with their friends. Although this might be true students are in classes for six hours a day, a longer time to eat lunch will not kill administrators. There will also be less students late to classes after lunch is over.
Administrators should let students have an extra ten minutes at lunch. This way students will actually be able to enjoy their meals.

    I agree with what is said but I also beleive that if we have longer lunches then we have longer school days which I think isnt a good idea.

    I love this article . Most of the students dont have time to eat and they are late to class because they are hungry the lines are really big and the adminitrators dont really care.

    We really need the 10 extra minutes to eat, by the time I get my lunch I don’t even have time to sit down and eat. I do feel rush to eat most of the time.
    I aslo think that the lines are too long and they do need to be more organize, most of the times people are cutting other people so they don’t have to wait.

    I agree with you , if we have at least 10 more minutes of lunch we can actually use the restrooms , find a table , eat , and socialize with our friends. me and my best friend personally rush to lunch just so we can get a table with chairs or use the restroom before it all gets packed. I also think that they should have more tables and chairs so everyone can be sitting down and eating instead of standing up in the middle of the cafeteria holding their plate the whole time that they’re eating.

    I agree with this even though I personally don’t eat school lunch. I could use some more social time and more time to take a break from classwork. Some people do their homework before class that they forgot about, and others use that time to be themselfs.

    I agree with this artical. Students should have more time to eat and more time to talk. In the lunch room their might be 30 students in one line and the adminitrators dont care. The school should really fix this problem.

    i agree with this. Although i am not victim of those mile long lines i still believe that our lunches should be a couple minutes longer and maybe could better our overall performance at school.

    i feel if we have 10 more minutes of lunch everything will be fine, i mean we got out of school. last year at 2;10. so i dont think it would be that big of a deal if we did it again if it means adding more time to lunch.

    I think they should give us more time because the truth is that over time they give us not everyone can grab lunch because the time ends the lines for lunch are very long, at least they give us 10 minutes more to grab lunch or To eat well without eating fast

    I agree, that lunch should be a bit longer this way i don’t have to worry if i’m going to be late to class and if i’m going to get my lunch on time and eat a bit of it and i’ll be nice and calm that i will be alright and i will get to class

    I honestly disagree with this, yes the things stated are true. BUT just like there´s students who believe they don´t have enough time, there are also students who do have time to eat and socialize with their friends. It is inconvenient to extend school lunches for many reasons. One of them is because school days would be longer and that would mean busses would have to wait an extra 10 minutes for students. I don’t think that would be acceptable, because busses are scheduled to pick up students at a certain time. It just wouldn’t be logical to change bus pick up time just for one school.

    I agree, longer lunches would reduce stress of students. Enabling them to concentrate more in thier classes.

    I agree with everything said but then again if we have longer lunches then we would have longer school days. Then again we should have time for every student to be able to eat at their paste and not rush through it.
