During the school day, everyone gets hungry during classes. Some like to go to the vending machines and get a snack or drink. Sometimes, you don't have time to grab snacks for throughout the day so vending machines help you have access to snacks. The MHS vending machines have different rules and options for their vending machines than the middle school.
At the middle school, you’re not allowed to access them until after school is out, but at MHS, you can access them whenever as long as you have a teacher's approval. The main reason you're not allowed to access vending machines during school hours at MMS are because you are absolutely not allowed to eat in class at all. As you go into highschool, most of the teachers allow eating in class, as long as you're aware of your surroundings and respectful of others. So, it's a bonus that you can eat in class and have better snack options!
The vending machines have so many great options, they contain snacks and some to go breakfast and lunch snacks. If you’re having a rough morning and forgot to eat breakfast you can eat the to go peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. There are also great drink options to choose from. A school favorite are Sparkling Ice’s (a good flavor to try is strawberry kiwi). Another great benefit is that the food and drinks are priced very reasonably so everyone has access to them.
According to MHS student Lauren Pelletier, “I love having vending machines in school because I always get hungry in class.” This being said, the vending machines are very valuable to the students of MHS.
