“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” —Princess Diana.

Joining your Child for Lunch at School

  • Parents will not be allowed to join your child for lunch until after Labor Day.

Why are we asking you to wait?


  • We need the students to learn our routines, procedures, and expectations in the cafeteria.
  • We want the students to socialize with their friends these first few weeks back to school. Lunch is a great opportunities to make new friends and catch up with old friends.
