Plural or singular?

If I want to say that students have lunch at their different schools, which expression below is correct?

1. Students have lunch at schools.

2. Students have lunch at their schools.

3. Students have lunch at school.

4. Students have lunch at their own school.

5. Students have lunch at their own schools.

The thing that confuses me is plural and singular.

"Students" is plural, if they are from the same school, then I can say

3. Students have lunch at school.

4. The students have lunch at school.

Using "the" or not is only based on whether they are considered as a particular group, right?

But when we are talking about all the students in the town, talking about the fact that they don't go home or go to restaurants to have their lunch, they eat in their different schools instead, here "students" are different groups, schools are different places,then how should express my original idea?

Hope I have made myself clear.

Many thanks!
