Longer Lunches at Levelland High
Sign this petition to show the administration that the students at Levelland High School want a longer lunch period. We find ourselves gliding into our last two years of high school, but once again I believe the class of 2011, and Levelland High School students are being cheated. The school days during the next school year are going to be longer; we will start early and end later, yet our lunch period is being shortened. During the day we are asked to refrain from talking during class, a task that is sometimes hard accomplish. We have short passing periods, and often do not have time to talk, or see friends in the hall. High school is a social place, and we need time to interact without consequence. Also, this shortened lunch can be dangerous as students rush to eat. I understand that this could be a concern to close the campus for all students, but can the cafeteria honestly handle every single student School is harder than ever before, we are asked to do better, but our privileges are constantly being taken away from us. School should be a place for us to enjoy learning, but it seems to be turing more into a prison like system, making kids turn away from education. Things to consider: Longer days make students more restless. Students need more outdoor time. Students need time outside of class with an 8-4 day things can hardly be accomplished, including banking, or things at SPC. Students often have practices after school is over, requiring more energy, and making the school day even later. Reckless driving will occur with restricted time. There are many more reasons to consider. Please leave feedback, let them know why you want this changed.
