Lunch Reminders and Lunch Schedule

We are excited to see you this year during lunch time! Here are a few things to keep in mind during your visit:



  • Please bring a picture ID and arrive several minutes early to check in at the front office and receive your visitor badge. This badge will need to be worn for the entirety of your visit.
  • Please wait for your child at the visitor tables in the cafeteria.
  • You may bring food for our child from outside establishments; however, please refrain from sharing food with children other than your own.
  • When lunch is over, please allow your child to leave the cafeteria with his/her grade level. Once your child has lined up with his/her grade level, please return to the office, turn in your badge, sign out, and leave through the front door.
  • We encourage you to reserve parent lunch visits for special occasions in order to allow your child plenty of time to socialize with friends.
