    I need to start training my body to get used to 11:00 lunch again. I'm starving by 3 PM because I'm not hungry enough to eat much at 11:00. When do you eat?

    We don't eat until 12:20 (unless our schedule changes). I have to start prepping for that also. Good thing we have a nutrition break about 9:30... I am going to need it. :)

    Our schedule is changing a bit in September--I think lunch is from 11:45 - 12:45.

    We also eat at 11:00. The first week or so of school I'm always starving in the afternoon!

    We have three lunch waves. If you have first lunch, you eat at 10:48. I usually have third lunch, which starts at about 11:40.

    We eat right at noon. It's usually 12:10 before I sit down. My class has a snack at 10, so I am usually fine.

    Lunch and recess is 11:30 to 12:10. I'm starting back on that schedule at home this week just to get ready. I'm always starving on the way home, so I need to remind DH about afternoon snacks in my lunch bag.

    12:30- and that's the early lunch. Juniors and seniors don't eat until 1:00. With breakfast at 8:50-9:05, it can be quite torturous waiting so long for lunch. Days when I'm not in school, I usually eat around 11:30.

    Wow! All these people with snack/nutrition times! We don't get one :( . I don't know what our schedule for this year will be, since we have a new P. For the past two years, the first grade lunch schedule was from 12:00-12:20. After waiting in line for the (only) teacher bathroom, that only left about 10 minutes, so I usually ate during my planning period from 12:30-1:15, unless I had a conference or a meeting, lol.

    My lunch is 10:30-11:00.

    The cafeteria went cashless this year, so if I want anything from there I have to open an account and put money in that. ummm...I don't eat there often enough (prepackaged does not equal "healthy" in my book) to warrant that. If I forget my lunch I will have to run out and get something. I think Subway will be only choice at that time of day.

    I'm 10:30 to 11 as well. I eat breakfast at 5:30, so I'm usually starving by lunch time.

    11:45 to 12:30, unless we have indoor recess. Then it's 12:00 to 12:30.

    10:00 for the kids and 10:30 for me and my aides. There is no way we can eat at the same time the kids eat. We are too busy with out special needs kids. (They watch a 30 min. educational video while we eat ours).

    Theoretically, I get to pick my own lunch time because I create my own schedule of when I pull kids out. However, between working around the classes that were at recess/lunch at the time and my recess/lunch duties, I often found that I really didn't get much of a choice. I scheduled as many days as I could (I believe 3) for me to have lunch 11:30-12:00 because that's when the teachers that are really social/always eat in the lounge happened to have lunch. The other 2, I had to do 11:50-12:20, so I'd catch them for a little bit but after that there usually wasn't anyone to talk to, unless our SLP was there or the perm sub wasn't subbing. This year the first lunch starts at 11, which I think is a bit early, but I won't know anything until I find out what duties I have and things like that.

    I don;t have lunch at school until 1:20. I naturally get hungry at around 11:00. I just bring a little snack to eat during my planning.

    11 am .... the good thing the first week the kids are back we will be focusing on routines etc in the cafeteria so I doubt there will be much chance to eat. But then the next chance wont be until 2pm so that is also a bad thing....

    We eat at 10:45. During the school year I wake up between 5:00-5:30AM and I usually make a light breakfast. Because I eat so early I'm hungry by the kids lunch time.

    I wont know my lunch time until planning days next week. I always have cafeteria duty, so I have to wait and see when I'm scheduled for my 30 minutes in there. I'll either eat before duty (my preference) or after it (hard to get food from the kitchen if needed b/c they close up at 12:30). I'm always starving by lunch no matter the time!

    I eat/drink breakfast around 7-7:30 while commuting. Last year I had duty from 12:10 - 12:40 with my lunch 12:45-1:15. I liked that this schedule let me pull kids up until their lunch time, but it kept me from pulling after their lunch for a bit.

    We have one cafeteria for K-12, so we have staggered lunches. HS students eat at 10:30, MS eat at 11:00, then elementary starts at 11:30 (Kind), 11:40 (1st), 11:50 (2nd), 12:00 (3rd), 12:10 (4th), and 12:15 (5th) with kitchen doors closed at 12:30.

    Last year I ate lunch at 10:30. Some of the kids brought snacks for the afternoon.

    This year I don't have to take kids to lunch. I'm excited. I've been eating around 11:00.

    My lunch will be at 12:50. However, I will be on cafeteria duty during this time, so we'll see if that's really when lunch gets eaten! :)

    I have an 11:00 lunch this year and I'm ecstatic! Last year I had lunch at 10:12 am!!

    My worst year was when I had first specials at 8:15 am and last lunch at 12:50 pm. Talk about a loooong day.

    Anyhoo, I always nibble at lunch and then eat when the kiddos leave.

    When I taught 2nd grade, my lunch was always 11:20-12:10.

    Now that I'm teaching middle school, my lunch is from 1:10-2:00!

    My body is going to have to get used to a late lunch!

    I subbed for several teachers in the same building who had their lunch at 9:30AM during 2nd period, with first period being their planning period. 3rd pd through 8th they had classes/study hall/duty. The school day ran from 8AM-3:30PM.

    For you teachers who are eating lunch around the 10:00 time, I feel for ya! I'm sorry that you have to eat so early. Are you waking up around 5, though? (That's when I wake up.) Maybe if you just have a light breakfast/coffee around then, you'll be hungry by the time "lunch time" rolls around.
