Re: Morning Rehearsals and Free/Reduced Breakfast
Breakfast is built into my early morning schedule. I make arrangements with the cafeteria to open 15 minutes early so my kids can go eat. So we rehearse for 30 minutes, eat for 15, rehearse another 10 that leads into 1st period. I try to connect families who can help give rides to students who have to ride the bus so they can get there on time.
I do NOT allow them to go eat breakfast after class has started because then they'll take the whole period to come back.
Admin has started calling on ELA teachers to send the kids to breakfast. They have a 2 period block and can afford the time.
