Many students complain about lunch. Not just the food in the cafeteria but upperclassmen complain about how hard it is to make it back to Lincoln High after leaving campus for lunch. The building of most high schools in Lincoln caused an increase of restaurant development near the school. At Lincoln High there are very few options near enough for a half an hour trip because of it’s urban and early development in the city.  Coupled with the grid-lock of Lincoln’s lunch time traffic is the congestion at the cafeteria’s entrance.  Students and staff have raised questions of concern regarding whether or not students have enough time to stand in line, purchase food, and digest before classes commence in the afternoon.  Add to this the fact that there once were three options for eating locations in the building which has been reduced to one locale, one line.  Consequently, the congestion in the west hall has caused traffic near the cafeteria to be impacted, as well.

Options outside for juniors and seniors have increased this year, too, yet hold another style of congestion: the fast food kind.  On the corner of Capitol Parkway and 21st street, the city of Lincoln is acquiring a McDonald’s at the doorstep of Lincoln High.  The “Golden Arches” are now within walking distance for LHS students to be “Super-Sized” and is fast becoming a popular destination for Links.

Just as the cafeteria received a make-over, so did the lunch hour routine for students.   Congestion, no matter where you dine, now seems to be a dominant part of the school day.
