Over the summer, the vending machines were removed, because administration believed they had turned into a distraction during class time, and they were always broken and mistreated.

Cindy Henzi, the hall monitor, said, “The machines will not be returning, because they were distracting educational time, and they were a target for vandalism.”

There were two vending machines prior to the summer selling chips, gummy worms, and lots of other snacks.

”I watched the vending machines get vandalized constantly,” said Stockton Putnam, a 7th grader.

Vending machines can bring in money for school needs and typically that is the justification for having them in schools.

“I enjoyed them because they had a good selection of snacks. I’m sad the vending machines are gone, but I can see why,” said Bridger Gleason, a 7th grade student.

Students will either need to bring in their own snacks or do without.
