Lunch Behavior Expectations at Komachin

  • Komachin Middle School provides lunch service for all of our students. Free or reduced lunch price information and forms may be obtained in the cafeteria. There are three separate lunch times with each lunch lasting thirty minutes long. In general, students are assigned a lunch with same house class-mates. Lunch is an important time for students to socialize with friends, relax, eat, and play. All students are expected to eat in the cafete-ria during the first fifteen minutes of their lunchtime. Students are allowed to leave the cafeteria after 15 minutes to go outside in the garden area, the library, or classrooms with a pass previously obtained.
     
    Access to the restrooms during lunch is by permission; student passes are available and must accompany each student to the restroom.
     
    Once students leave the cafeteria and go outside, they may only come back in with permission.
    Students may access the library and the com-puter lab during lunch with permission. Passes are available on a first come first serve basis when the library or lab is open.
     
    After cleaning up your eating area, students may exit the cafeteria only after given permission.  Students choosing to go outside are expected to remain in the designated garden and gymnasium areas. Students are to remain in areas that are visible to adult supervisors. Students are not to be in the halls or restrooms outside the cafeteria without a pass and prior permission.  Students may go to the attendance and counseling offices during lunch with a valid reason.

    Lunch Detention

     
    Students are assigned lunch detention for a variety of reasons as part of the Komachin Middle School building-wide WOLF PACK program. Common reasons for being assigned detention may include eating in unauthorized areas, failure to follow lunchroom or outside expectations, or excessive tardies to classes.
     
    When assigned lunch detention the student is  responsible for signing in within 5 minutes of the beginning of the lunch period, eating lunch in the detention room, remaining quiet for the remainder of the lunch period, and signing out at the end of the lunch period.
     
    An additional day of lunch detention will be assigned for each day a student forgets to sign in or for not following through correctly with lunch detention responsibilities. Only students assigned to lunch detention may sit in the  detention room. It is considered “off limits” to non-assigned students.
     
    Students who are unable to follow detention expectations and are disruptive to the environment will be subject to discipline up to and  including suspension.
     

    Food, Gum, Beverages

     
    Students are expected to consume food and beverages in the cafeteria only. They will be confiscated and disposed of if they are being consumed in an non-designated area. Gum chewing is not allowed on campus at anytime and will result in disciplinary consequences. Students are allowed access to a water vending machine during the day. All other snack machine use is restricted to lunch and after school.
