Apparently Whittier Elementary now has a 15-minute lunch and 15-minute recess (it had been a 20-minute lunch and a 20-minute recess last year). Given these narrow windows - and the time it takes kids to work through a line and get served - some of the kids who are eating the hot lunch (and this means the FRL kids) only get about five minutes of seated lunch time before being excused to recess.
If this is true, it is out of compliance with District policy and procedure (H61.01).
Concerns have fallen on deaf ears at the school. Families are meeting on Thursday evening to determine a plan of escalation and action.
Can anyone provide additional detail?
