I went to my son's school today to surprise him with a visit at lunch. First off, his lunch is at 10:45 am.... way too early...and secondly, I was completely appalled at the structure of how they do lunch time. My son is a first grader, so this is the first year of us dealing with lunches. Anyhow, the kids get 30 minutes for lunch. We stood in line for 15 minutes to get his lunch, had to walk back to the classroom (there is no cafeteria in the school!) for him to sit and eat. by the time we got there, he had like 10 minutes to scarf down his food. then the teacher called the 5 minute warning for clean up! My poor son barely got to eat 2 parts of his meal. I was and am still so outraged by this. I even emailed the Principal! Its just ridiculous. He will be taking more cold lunches. How do they do lunch in your child's school? If you don't know..I would suggest you find out. I posted about this on my personal page and already got a few comments from friends that say it's the same in their childs' school, or that they were shocked and going to find out!
