Junior Shane Thomas picks up his pre ordered lunch from administrator Lindsey Comfort on Sept. 18.

New this year, students can pre order lunches through the school’s website bookmark tab. The tab leads to a Google form where students can order meals ahead of time to avoid the wait in line.

“We implemented it to help alleviate crowding to bring down the line in the cafeteria,” said Lindsey Comfort, one of the staff members who monitor the pre order lunch station. 

“You don’t have to wait for 20 minutes rather than the two minutes for the preorder,” said junior William Harrison.   

Although Comfort said that the pre order numbers dropped from 80 to 50 in the month of September, staff member Robin Griffin said that in last two weeks, pre order numbers remain between 80 and 90. Though the pre order line may be getting longer, it is the quicker option.

“We now see the preorders for students who need their lunch quickly. It gives kids a fast pass,” said Comfort.
