Lunch Visitors

Starting Tuesday, September 6 we will open our doors to lunch visitors. There are a few things to keep in mind when eating lunch with your child...


  • We have very limited space. Visitors will eat lunch in the work room in the front office. If this space is full you will need to eat outside at the picnic tables on the north side of the building. Be weather aware when making lunch plans.
  • If a person other than a parent/guardian is wanting to have lunch with a student we must have permission from the parent prior to the visitor arriving.
  • You may only each lunch with your child, they may not bring a friend with them.
  • Your visit is limited to lunch only. As soon as you are done eating with your child you will need to check out through the front office.
