Thirty minutes. Kids coming back from Vo-Tech have between 20-25 minutes.

I think 80 minutes is way too long. I teach at a small school, so it's quick to get through the lunch line and they are usually out of the cafeteria after about 15 minutes and hanging out outside (with supervision).

Are they really unsupervised? If so, that makes me anxious-even the best high school kid can get up to some stupid stuff in 80 supervised minutes.

But I also understand that scheduling can be a nightmare especially if you are at a school that is experiencing a teacher shortage. Also, we don't have a block schedule so that may make a difference as well.
