Lunches should be combined

Ella Wachtel
A majority of students at Fuquay Varina High School, agree the lunches should be combined.

Having combined lunches allows students from different ages and cultural backgrounds to connect with one another. Also it gives students more time for lunch. Why have 70 minute classes and only a 40 minute lunch? 

Students being able to associate themselves with different types of people is a really important thing. It allows students to understand and learn more about people and their differences. It also allows students to better understand their peers and learn to be more sociable. 

Having combined lunches would allow lunch to be longer, allowing more time for students to go off campus and make it back before the bell rings without having to speed and risk getting into a crash. 

Junior Isaac Reyna said, “Sometimes I have to speed in order to make it back to school before the bell rings. It takes me 30 minutes just to go somewhere and get my food. I have to quickly eat my food so I make it back to campus.” 

Keeping kids safe should be a number one priority in schools, and what better way is there to do this than combining lunches?

If lunches aren’t combined, teens won’t develop the social skills they need to have and will be shy and lonely for the rest of their lives, that’s if they even make it back to school after lunch.
