  a.Lunch Hour

  Its a 40 minute block of time. Kindergarten gets more time. Kindergarten comes down 10 minutes early. The whole building has lunch at the same time. Half eat first, half go outside, then they switch.  Kindergarten Teachers are there for the first 10 minutes to help. 300 in the cafeteria, 300 outside.

  Last year we had 3 periods. We do not have that time this year. Because specials needed to be increased.  We lost 18 minutes for lunch. Just barely  enough time to set up the lunch room.
