Dear Editor,

I graduated from Cupertino High School in the 1960s. The school had more than 3,000 students attending. To handle the volume of students. there were three 30-minute lunch periods. It was workable.

Cupertino was closed campus so the students ate there or brought from home. On campus were the cafeteria, hamburger and hot dog window and snack bar.

Having multiple lunch periods is a workable thing and has been around for more than 40 years. It is a benefit for the students in addition to the cooks and food servers.

If the personnel have difficulties with multiple lunch periods, have them contact their counter parts at Fremont Union High School District in Cupertino. Hungry students don’t do well in school.
