State School Superintendent Encourages Lunch Period Reviews

State school superintendent Michael Flanagan is asking school administrators around the state to review the lengths of their lunch periods.

Flanagan sent a memo out this week emphasizing the need for healthy lunches and asked school to make sure they are allowing enough time for students to eat.

Although Michigan has not mandated a lunch period length, Flanagan points out in his memo that five states do. Three states require a minimum of 20 minutes for lunch and and the other two require 30 minutes.

In the memo, Superintendent Flanagan says "ensuring sufficient time to receive and consume a school lunch enables students the ability to finish their healthy meal and provides nourished bodies that are ready to learn."
