A new change in the senior lounge procedures has many seniors upset. Originally, there was a lunch line that formed inside the lounge, but now it is closed and the line has been moved outside of the lounge.
Cafeteria food service worker Shawn Ovington stated, “The main reason they closed the lunch line in the senior lounge was because we didn't have a computer for kids to put in their numbers in so they were getting lunch in the senior lounge then going out the original lines to get more food.” This is a problem for the food service providers because it makes their job of feeding the students more difficult. Ovington goes on to state, “it makes it harder on me because I have only so many portions of food a day.” This means that he has a certain amount of food for the day, and students grabbing double lunch complicates their inventory.
Several students voiced their concerns over these new changes. Seniors liked the fact that they were able to get food apart from the younger kids, that it was easier for them and faster. Now that the line in the senior lounge is closed it makes it harder for seniors to get lunch due to the long line. Also, younger students are still sneaking into the senior line.
Hopefully with our student government we can ask all the seniors to speak up and try to get the line back up. If this is an issue you care about and want the procedure changed, contact the student government president Hanzell Carrillo, or student government advisor Mr. Delehanty to bring your opinion and hopefully make change.
