Up to this year, Hilton Head High School, part of the Beaufort County (SC) School District, operated its lunch schedule like most high schools in this country. Each class paraded through the cafeteria, crowding the servery to get their food and then gobble it down while chatting up friends, all in a constricted 25-minute lunch period. When they left, the next troupe crowded in.
