Clark Cafeteria Procedures Beginning 9/9

En Espanol


To help maintain everyone's health and safety, we will have new cafeteria procedures for students returning for Face-To-Face instruction.

  • Breakfast will be available for students beginning at 8:00 am. We will have 4 separate lunch sessions and will be cleaning the cafeteria between each session.
  • Students will not be allowed to choose their cafeteria seats (per TEA guidelines for contact-tracing). Staff members will be present and help guide students to their designated seats.
  • No microwaves will be available for use
  • Students need to check with their 4th period Google Classroom and teacher to find out their specific lunch time. A video will be posted in their 4th period Google Classroom outlining the specific procedures for their class.
  • All students will report directly to their 4th period class (even if they have A lunch). Teachers will lead their classes to the cafeteria at the designated times.

We understand that these procedures are different from previous years, but we are trying to maintain a safe and healthy environment for everyone. Thank you for helping us protect our Clark family!
