RB is trying to change the schedule to put lunch before 3rd period. This would cause everyone who has 4th period offroll to stay at school till 12:54 instead of 12:24 like it is right now. Many students who have jobs will take 4th period offroll so they may leave school early and start to work. Changing the schedule would interfere with their job schedule and their daily school lives. Additionally, lunch would be at 10:48 which is very early. The average student wakes up between 6-6:30 AM. According to Summit Medical Group, a trusted medical research company, meals need to be timed between 6am-6pm in a 12 hour schedule. If you average that lunch should not be place before 11:30 A.M. Furthermore, no one is hungry at 10:48 and if they wanted to eat at normal lunchtime which is usually around 12, they might be punished if their teacher does not allow them to eat in class. The whole reason the administration is thinking of changing the schedule is to increase “school spirit”, however it is reasonable to assume that this may do the contrary and decrease school spirit if students were angry with the fact that they have to stay at school longer. Overall, changing a lunch time to a time significantly too early for the natural student to eat, will not help school spirit. In order to change school spirit for the better perhaps increasing the lunch time and adding more interesting activities for the student body. Activities such as powderpuff (girls football coached by football players) tournaments, music at lunch, more rallies and assemblies, and interesting activities could encourage the student body to come together and have more school spirit. Lunch as it is can be pretty boring. Change is a must: however, moving lunch is a step in the wrong direction.
