Parents of Dixon students received a note on why the boys and girls are no longer eating lunch together.

A parent of a child at Reagan Middle School in Dixon sent an image of a letter the family received in regards to a change in lunch period protocol.

Boys will report to the cafeteria first during each lunch period to eat, ... transitioning girls to the cafeteria approximately 12 minutes later.

According the note, sent to WIFR, this circumstance may change should the number of staff increase at the school.

The change is expected to be temporary. It will allow the school to "supervise students appropriately" and "provide a safe environment" while the school looks to add more staff to the lunch period.
