Lunch Information - updated October 12

Students are encouraged to leave the school over the lunch hour.  Heading home or eating outside offers the opportunity for a mask break.  

Students should return to school as close to the bell as possible as early reentry to classrooms is not possible due to classes taking place in period 3 and 4.  The bell to start period 4 is at 12:10pm and the bell to start period 5 is at 1:15pm.

Students who stay for lunch must report to the cafeteria.  If the cafeteria is full, additional classroom spaces with distanced seating will be opened for use. Please check in with the cafeteria supervisor.

Students who leave for lunch can reenter the building during the first part of the lunch hour if space permits in the cafeteria or library.  During inclement weather, additional seating will be provided in alternate spaces.

Reentry will be restricted during the last part of each lunch hour with no entry aside from emergencies after 11:50am in period 3 and after 12:55 in period 4.
