Students say they were chased from cafeteria

by Michele Catahay

Guam - A misunderstanding or punishment for not eating the cafeteria food? Several John F. Kennedy High School students claim they were told by school aides last Friday that they couldn't eat in the school cafeteria because they weren't eating the food provided by Kings Restaurant.

JFK junior Kojay Quichocho says he and his friends packed up their own food and ate outside but doesn't believe students should be chased out of the cafeteria, telling KUAM News, "I think we should definitely be allowed to use the basic things that we have in school, including the cafeteria. At JFK, we're already deprived in all these things so the cafeteria is the only thing we have. So we should just regardless of whose lunch you're eating."

Quichocho says there was more than enough room for everyone to sit and eat.

In the meantime, JFK assistant principal Asherdee Rosete says it's something they're currently investigating themselves, adding, "Students are not asked to leave the cafeteria because the food they're eating. It's because we need to make space for the other students who haven't eaten, and so from what I'm able to understand in just speaking with some of the teachers and the support staff who were in the cafeteria during lunch, the information was that it was the last day for students and they were getting together for exchange gifts."
