    Dear Principal Corte, I write to you with a concern that requires immediate attention. It is my belief that the lunch period at Mountain Vista High School is not long enough and should be lengthened. The most important reason that our lunch period should be extended is so that all the students at Mountain Vista High School have a chance to eat. As it stands now, many students are unable to get through the lunch line and eat lunch. Even if the lunchroom staff are extremely efficient and able to get everyone through the line, some students end up with only a few minutes to eat their lunch. I have spoken with the school nurse about this issue, and she says that eating too quickly is a very unhealthy habit. Consequently, some students have become so frustrated with the long lines that they have resorted to getting their lunch from the vending machines, and everyone knows that a candy bar and a can of soda is the worst possible lunch a person can eat. The fact of the matter is that if the lunch period is extended, then all the students will make it through the lunch line and will be able to eat their lunch in a healthy way. In addition, the lunch period should be extended because it would give students additional time to study or finish up homework. Those of us who take part in after-school activities or have jobs often don’t get home until late in the evening. Then, after we eat dinner, we are usually too exhausted to put our best effort into our homework. If we had more time at lunch, many of us would complete our homework properly. I truly hope that you take my arguments under consideration, Principal Corte. Please see the attached petition with almost 2,000 signatures of students who share my opinions about extending the lunch period. Take this petition as a sign that there are many of us who are not completely happy with our experience at Mountain Vista High School. Mountain Vista High School is important to me, and I believe that students should get the best: extend our lunch period, and you will definitely get the best from us. Sincerely, Alexis Walters
