Linda Harding started this petition to Sachem School Board

While we the parents of Sachem School District appreciate your endeavor to enrich our children's extended school day we the below feel you have fallen short in one very important aspect. With the stress placed upon children today with the advanced curriculum as opposed to years ago and the testing that is placed upon them to do well it is an injustice to their overall well being to shorten their lunch periods. Many of our children will not be able to finish their lunch, especially if they are buying. Younger children sometimes need help as do those in special ed classes. Their brain and bodies need nutrition and some relaxation in order to perform well academically. By shortening their lunch/recess time and spreading it out to other areas how much in those areas are they really gaining and at what expense ?Now instead of spending a relaxing period they are being placed under more undue stress. The special ed child is under enough stress throughout the school day and many times feels defeated. Now add to their frustration by not being able to have the help with their lunch that they may need and leave the cafeteria still hungry and for some students, lunch may be the only full meal they get for the day. Do you really want to take that away? You need to feed your body to nourish your mind. Please take to heart our concerns and reconsider this new policy.         If you agree please sign so that it can be presented to the Sachem School Board.
