A staggered shift schedefle will be instituted for the second semester (which begins Jan. 25) at Pioneer High School, ' Principal Theodore R. Rokicki announced today. _ About half the students (mostly seniors and their brothers and sisters) will go to school from about 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The remainder of the students will be in class from about 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be some exceptions. The shift will be instituted to allow more flexibility in scheduling, not primarily because of overcrowded conditions. The staggered shift schedule will mean there will be no study halls as presently known, and no student lunch hour. There will be a 14-minute snack break in the morning and a ,22-minute snack break in the afternoon. Apples, sandwiches and other similar foods will be sold during the breaks. No final decisions have been made on whether all Pioneer cafetería personnel will be retained in the school system, since hot lunches at Pioneer will no longer be served. Ralph LaJeunesse, director of business operations, says he and cafeteria supervisor Ann Asheton are exploring the possibility that about half of the 16 Pioneer cafetería people could be retained to prepare and serve faculty lunches and opérate student snack bars. About four additional cafetería workers also are tentatively expected to be needed at four pilot elementary schools where a hot lunch program will begin second semester.
