Off Campus Lunch

“I always go out for lunch. I don’t think there's ever a day I stay at the school and eat in the commons anymore.

Off campus lunch is a privilege here at Gig Harbor High School. The senior class has the opportunity to leave at their designated lunch time. However, a lunch pass is required to be able to leave the school campus. If you don’t have a lunch pass, Kevin, the security guard, may stop you and have you turn back around to stay in the parking lot. But, when it comes to the students who do have a pass, they have 30 free minutes to pretty much go wherever they want.

Many seniors go grab coffee from the local shops, Cutters Point or William Patrick’s. Students may also go to Costco for some pizza, chicken bakes, smoothies and more. You would think all students go out to a local business for a quick bite to eat but that’s not always the case; some students go home for lunch and grab something out of their own pantry.

Avery Wellbrock, a senior, goes home for lunch almost every day. She says, “My house is about 4-5 minutes away from the school so I like to just chill at home and make eggs and a bagel at lunch.” This option can be beneficial for some students depending on where they live because it allows time to finish up some homework, save money or just take a breather, just like Avery does.

Morgan Waage, also a senior at Gig Harbor, either goes home or Cutters Point. Both are relatively close to the school. Morgan says, “I always go out for lunch. I don’t think there’s ever a day I stay at the school and eat in the commons anymore. I also really like dumplings and I usually go home to make or eat them.”
