From the KCS Student Handbook:

Parents/guardians are invited during the school year to have lunch in the cafeteria with their children. All lunch visits must be pre-approved by the student’s teacher or administration to ensure there is an accurate lunch count. Only parents/guardians are allowed for lunch visits; current identification must be shown upon arrival. Again, please do not bring outside food or beverages to your child.

Policy 3.500: Food or drink packaged at commercial food establishments shall not be brought in to the cafeteria to be consumed by students during their regular mealtimes.
