Difference in lunch hours is affecting students at Buffalo High School. For some, it affects their entire eating schedule for the rest of the day. While most students have B or C lunch, the few that are placed in A or D lunch have a struggle with the rest of their day.
“I have had A-Lunch all year so for me, at first, it was a struggle but now since it’s already third term I’ve gotten a little used to eating a smaller breakfast every morning,” said Junior Hayley Johnston.
If a student has A-Lunch, then most likely eating a proper breakfast is hard to manage every day because lunch starts at 10:33 a.m.. Yet, eating breakfast is important for students; eating a decent meal helps your brain focus longer throughout the day and keeps your metabolism running higher.
“The lucky few that have B or C must have it easier to maintain their eating habits,” said Johnston, “but all my friends are in my lunch and that makes things slightly better.”
While if a student is placed in the last lunch period, D-Lunch, they have to wait till 12:03 p.m. to eat their meal.
“I hate having lunch so late,” said Junior Donna Peterson, “I would usually eat a snack after school but now I have to snack like during Second Block so I’m not starved for lunch.”
