Generally school lunches have always been looked down upon by students. Nevertheless Oyster Bay offers up many hearty choices for students to choose from. This year students get to try macaroni and cheese, twin tacos, pasta with meatballs, chicken calzones, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, philly cheese steaks, salads, and sandwiches.
“School lunch really isn’t as bad as people make it out to be. The best is calzone day,” according to senior Ryan Maier.
For the past few years the system of ordering lunch has changed. Now students must scan their school IDs then pay for their food. This new system has caused a number of problems. The primary problem is wait time. Scanning your ID takes longer than just buying your lunch with money alone which causes huge line buildups.
Pat Burke, senior at Oyster Bay High School stated, “Although the lunch lines are usually large, it is worth the wait!” New additions have been added to the school lunch menu, frozen yogurt has made an appearance. The Oyster Bay lunch staff puts a lot of effort into their menu. Each year new items have been added to keep things fresh and up to date.
According to senior Chris Kulis, “Although I am big on running I love to eat; the school lunches keep improving and getting better!” The majority of students at Oyster Bay are happy with the school lunch situation. There is always new food to choose from and the staff is friendly.
