Teachers at Eastlawn Elementary School enjoy lunch without students once a month

BURLINGTON, N.C. -- Once a month, teachers at Eastlawn Elementary School get to enjoy lunch away from their students.

"Normally, teachers stay in the lunch line with their kids, so it takes a good ten minutes to get through the line and then they have to warm up their food if they brought it from home, so they only get a good 10 or 15 minutes to enjoy their lunch," said Assistant Principal Temeka Cloud.

The day of duty-free lunch gives teachers an opportunity to relax and it's just one more day to boost morale.
