    are to

    Dear teachers

    Is there any difference between (1) and (2)?

    1, You are not to eat after midnight.
    2, You are not supposed to eat after midnight.

    Have a great day!

    Re: are to

    The first is more emphatic. am/is/are to +inf can also be used for formal arrangements, btw.
