Seventy percent of all high schools in America have closed campus lunches. At U.S. Grant High School they are one of the schools that do not allow students to leave campus for lunches. When students do leave the campus, they get an one hundred dollar truancy fine the first time. The next time is five hundred dollars. After that they keep adding an extra five hundred dollars to the fine. It seems just a bit excessive. The point is, should the students just stop leaving for lunch or should the school just allow students to have the ability to leave? Schools should allow the students to leave campus for lunch.
While some people may think that it is a good idea for our principal to change our lunch menus to something much more healthy I think it is a bad idea for our principal to change it, the reasons why I feel that it should not be changed is because most student's pay for lunch, most student's will not eat the food, most student's buy snacks at lunch. One of the main reasons why I feel like it is a bad idea is because most students have to pay for lunch. When student's pay for their lunch they expect that it is something worth them spending money on. Also when student's or people in general don't like something they will refuse to pay for it. When student's don't pay for lunch then the school will lose money. Another reason why i feel
Kids not buying the lunches from the school means not as much money comes into our school. And not having the money from lunches means the school would not make as much money. So we would not have money for the school to supply us with the school supplies we need, like wood pencils, loose leaf paper, and other supplies like glue sticks. If you want kids to be healthier, the easiest thing to do would to be to give the kids more time to be active. The biggest thing you could do to make kids healthier is provide more time for activities. Kids only have an hour and a half for P.E. A lot of the kids at school do not even take physical education at all. Which is not good at all, and we barely have outside of school to get our sports or exercise in because every student at school is busy with homework. In conclusion, the school lunches should not be changed because a lot of kids would not eat the new lunches, kids not buying the new lunches means the school would loose money for our supplies, and if you want us to be healithier the easiest thing to do is make more time for
Second, the students will learn how to be responsible because they will have a choice to eat the fast food. The fast food is a little unhealthy so they would be given the choice to eat the fast food or just eat the healthier food that they serve at the school lunch.
Every school day, my friends and I starve all day. The lunches here at our school are so bad that a lot of us skip eating lunch. We would rather not eat then to eat nasty food. We are literally starving by the time we get home from school each day. This issue affects me because I don’t like others including me starve all day just because the school lunch is nasty. For this very reason, this is why I chose to have the option of allowing students to eat off campus lunch.
Store bought lunches taste way better and are even cheaper! A store-bought lunchable is about two dollars which includes a drink, a piece of candy, and a pizza. That at a school would usually cost anywhere up to at least six dollars. That’s saying something! A lot of people already buy their lunches at the store, but if the school lowers their lunch prices, a lot of them would buy from the school instead. I know I would! Of course the school could lose some money by lowering the prices of the meals, but they would still make a profit, and if they lowered it, more people will eat their food which could maybe make an even bigger profit then
Have you ever wondered if you could ever change the school lunches in the Public schools? Well you’re not the only one, many other people thought about changing the way you eat at lunch and started to change it. Some trials have failed but some have succeeded at the trail for their public school. But some administrators what it to come to all schools, for the fact that they are losing money because kids stopped eating lunches at school. The school lunches impacting more than just the schools money, it’s impacting the students education and after school activities just like sports teams.
All of the children that live in America are entitled to a free public education. A lunch is provided that costs a reduced fee for those who attend a public school. Everyday thousands of kids go to school and mindlessly eat this lunch. A lunch that is filled with frozen, processed foods that all share the same unpronounceable chemicals in their ingredient list. I personally believe that if schools started to add more natural, fresh, whole foods into their lunches it would be helpful to our societies growing obesity epidemic. “Today approximately 16% of America 's youth are classified as obese,” in that case, changing one meal a day could prevent as much as 6% of America’s youth from becoming obese.
As I walked into the cafeteria, I caught a whiff of the food being prepared in the cafeteria and thought to myself, “Why can’t we go off-campus to get lunch?” While SLA, the lunch program at Catholic High, provides the school lunches, there could be an alternative solution to this. Unfortunately, students are detained at school during lunch hours and are not able to leave campus during lunch forcing them to be served by SLA or bring their own lunch. If Catholic High School were to introduce an open-campus lunch, students and faculty would benefit greatly.
Imagine your school cafeteria plans to change to a new healthier school lunch menu, which would eliminate some of the students favorite cafeteria foods. Although people think that changing the lunch menu to a healthier menu is a good thing, however this is not true. The food might be healthier but what difference does it make if no one's eating it. Think about it, most students would stop eating, the school makes money off of lunch, and it helps keep parents' happy, sounds pretty good to me. I speak for most kids when I say don't change the lunch menu. Change is not always good. It definitely isn't good when students stop eating. Everyone knows it's harder to focus when your hungry, and in school we need a hundred percent focus. When people don't eat most of the time they become
Some people don’t want students to have longer lunch periods because it will result in them being in school longer. People think this will add more stress. Students won’t get out early, but will still be
they will be able to think better rather than stare off into space. With more food and for all kids should get free they will be concentrated in class and overall will just a have better days at school
I believe public schools should have lunches that are good and good for you. The reason being that student go to school for about 7 hours. They work hard for the grades they have. It doesn 't seem fair to feed them something that is most often disgusting and bad for them when they try so hard. True, they could bring lunch from home, but what happens if they forget or can make lunch to school. This problem needs to be solved. School is a place of learning, and what lunch time is teaching is that it is ok to eat unhealthy food. When I went to public school I was revolted by the disgusting food. The pizza was horrid, the chicken sandwiches were wet, and the salad tasted like dirt and not even good dirt, the dirt with dead thing underground. Honestly
Our school’s limited option of lunch beverages is disgusting. I’m of course referring to both the free milk they offer us and the drinks which can be purchased from their inventory of juices and healthy carbonated soda. Schools should offer students the decision to purchase and consume a wide variety of actually enjoyable beverages including those which may not be considered healthy. Whether the school installs vending machines or implements these drinks, students should have access to them because it helps students relax during a possibly difficult day at school, it should increase productivity and the quality of schoolwork, and it would probably improve the general student’s opinion of the school’s lunch.
Every day millions of kids pull out their brown bags and lunch bags and sit down with friends at their lunch table. Some kids though, either can 't afford it or just don 't buy it. So the school comes to the rescue with all sorts of, not really tasty foods. Parents can appreciate their efforts but, forcing kids to eat their not-so-tasty food or just sit through lunch with no food is not fair! The program providing school lunches is so kids would have a healthy meal that they really love. And that was the case until, they changed their standards. You probably wouldn 't like being told what you can or can 't eat. Students should be allowed to eat what they want at lunch, it should not be the government 's choice of what kids eat.
