Reservation for Lunch at Sally K. Ride

We have a Sign-Up Genius to reserve a spot to have lunch with your child. In order to give all parents an opportunity to sign up, each adult may only sign up once every three weeks.

There is no visitor seating available in the cafe. Therefore, you may eat in a couple of different areas; Art room, library or outside tables (by gazebo or Trike Track). Certain areas will be designated for specific grades. Please see the outdoor seating map and the Sing Up Genius for more details.

Next week, Oct 12-15th, we will allow 10 parents per lunch period to eat lunch with their child. Please make every effort to eat outside at picnic tables (weather permitting), otherwise you will see your location to eat in the Sign-Up Genius.
