Lunch/Attendance
By Joan Ibarra

This year, our freshmen are required to stay on campus during lunch and the high school wants attendance taken.  They were wondering if there was a way to keep track of attendance by punching in the lunch number so staff would not have to take attendance.

I did make a period for lunch.

We serve alacarte lunch, so I set up "brown bag" lunch in addition to the regular menu items, so they could punch in and not have any cost assessed if they do not actually eat from the lunch room.

However, it does not really differentiate the grade levels in the lunch reports.   I was thinking we may have to run a lunch report for freshmen each day and then put in attendance from the office.  Not ideal.

Any thoughts on this?
