Lunch Visitors Visitors are special guests, and we welcome you to eat lunch with your child. We ask that parents encourage good behavior and manners. Please follow these guidelines when visiting the cafeteria with a student:

Sign in at the front office. You will need your license to print a sticker/badge with LobbyGuard.

• Only family members will be allowed to eat with a student. There are special tables designated for students with visitors. Students are not allowed to ask friends to join family visitors at family tables.

• We ask that only 2 guests visit in order to save space for other students’ visitors.

• Federal guidelines prohibit outside restaurant items or soft drinks from being brought into the cafeteria.

• Please refrain from taking pictures of students in the cafeteria. Confidentiality of students must be protected.

JAE Walkers

There were a few complaints that walkers were dismissed early during the week before fall break. I apologize for any issues this may have caused for our youngest students who walk to their homes in Riverchase. We are back on our normal schedule, and this should no longer be a problem.


This is a great time to address the policy for students who are permitted to walk to and from school.


If you do not live in the Riverchase neighborhood, your child should not be walking to or from school. Eventually, there will be sidewalks and crosswalks for students who live in Hunt Club, but at this time, only residents in Riverchase are walkers.


Parking in the neighborhood to avoid the carline is not permitted. If you do not live in Riverchase, you may pick up your child in the carline, or he/she may ride the bus.
