Family Lunches

We would like to invite you to visit and have lunch with your student sometime during this school year and we look forward to welcoming visitors back for lunch with their child starting October 6th. As always, the school lunches can be found on the SchoolCafe website or app. 

Please follow these campus practices:

  • Lunch visitors are welcome beginning Friday, October 6th. This provides our teachers time to set procedures.

  • Guests must check in with their photo ID at our reception desk. Visitors MUST be listed on the student’s profile or be with the student’s guardian and have a photo ID. 

  • You are welcome to bring outside food for your child, but please do not share food with classmates. 

  • Due to limited space, only two visitors per student will be allowed. 

  • All visitors will eat with their child at the tables by the risers (front of the cafeteria). Guests may not eat with the class. Students may not bring a friend to the visitor's table.

  • We ask that guests hug goodbye and return their child to the class table 5 minutes before the end of lunch. 

  • Visitors may not attend recess, take pictures with friends or walk to the classroom.

Enjoy your visit! Please contact the school office with any questions at 972-926-2520.
