Changing Lunchtime At Olathe North
More options for those who don't want the lunchroom's chaos.
Everyone Should Be Able To Chose-
Have you ever had to go to the cafeteria when you didn't want to because it was the only choice?
Would/Do you go somewhere else during lunchtime than the cafeteria if you had the option?
Do you have any ideas where people could go?
Opions of Classmates-
What We Should Do-
I personally believe that students should not be allowed to go off of North’s campus, due to the immense amount of complications that would arise. Who would be responsible for them? Will they come back after lunch or simply decide to skip? How would the people who come and go be regulated? That’s why I suggest that there be two additional options to the cafeteria and lunchroom that will not close even in the event of assessments. These places would be the courtyard and a classroom. There would have to be a teacher on hand at each location, to offer some supervision. This way, even if the weather is bad outside, students can have the option to go to another place indoors.
Informing students of these options would have to be done in sections to best control and not be faced with a hoard of crowds. Start by mentioning the extra options to students who are often in the library during their lunch hour or students who sit alone during lunch. Expand it so that teachers are aware and can tell their pupils. By inevitable word of the mouth, it won’t be long before the whole school knows about it. To make sure it is known by all though, inform the student body during advisory.
