I answered "Adult roaming in the hallway" but actually need two answers:

Grades 1 through 4 - Adult in hallways (usually cover 3 classes) plus two grade 7 or 8 students in classroom.

Grades 5 through 8 - Adult in hallways

Thanks for clairifying. It would only give me 10 options and I thought it would be interesting to show if it was public school or private school.

I chose cafeteria with adult supervision, public school, but it's actually a lunch room that doesn't sell food. It's a small school - fewer than 200 kids.

Hi,

just my two cents - the the French catholic system since the JK and SK kids also eat lunch at school, they have an adult in the classroom during lunch. For grades 1-6, there is an adult who does 2 or 3 classes going between them.

Forgot to add that in the younger grades JK, SK, grades 1 and 2, 2 older students are also there. But this is just in our school, don't know what they other schools do. Its interesting since my older son (who has allergies and is in grade 5) helps out in his sister's class (SK). He is quite vigilant and is an extra pair of eyes for the supervisor who is in the class.

have no idea about adult supervision in his senior school.
as he is 13 now , i never thought to ask.
they have teachers roming at lunch time, etc, but thats about it.

however, at primary school ages 4 1/2 to rising 11, for 260 pupils, lunch time supervision is calulated at 6 adults, however it depends on adults all being there, some have kids ,who get sick etc , etc.

6 works best, spread in lunch hall, and both playgrounds.

school secretary stands at food line, crossing of names for school lunch, while making sure that dietary requirements are kept, not just for allergies, but for veggie kids as well.

its a good system that works well.

I also selected *cafeteria with adult* though his school is actually a lunchroom in the gym, not a real caf.

At our high school it is a blessing that there are a number of special needs students because there are a lot of EAs in the cafeteria at lunch! It is not their main focus to help other students than their own but they are always there if needed. There is also one or two EAs wandering the halls.

FYI, I'm going to be looking at the issue of Who's Supervising Lunch in the Fall (Back-to-School) issue of Allergic Living.

I need to get this going before school's out. So if anyone feels she or he has an interesting allergy-related story about lunch supervision - pls. send me an e-mail at editor@allergicliving.com

I would appreciate if you could put "lunch supervision" in the subject field.

Thanks all, Gwen

Re-raising - still looking for lunch supervision tales if you have one.
