This article made me do a double-take. Apparently some schools are serving lunch at 9:30 am(!) most often due to overcrowding. http://moms.today.com/_news/2012/09...or-school-lunch-perfect-when-its-945-am?lite# My tardy bell rings at 9:15, lunch is at 12:45, and dismissal is at 3:45. That's reasonable to me. I'm pretty sure our first lunch starts at 11:15 and the last lunch goes in a 1:45. However, my school has a pretty bad overcrowding problem, even with a modular cafeteria and 18 (or is it 17?) classroom trailers. If our growth continues I could see us having to start "morning lunch" someday. Craziness!
