We are looking forward to opening the campus to visitors in the next couple of weeks. Revised Campus Protocols were sent out in an email and in the e-blast earlier this week. We will continue to have a table outside the front office for a convenient drop-off and pick-up place for parents. Please read below for more details about our lunch and chapel policies and procedures.
Please call the front office or contact your teacher if you have additional questions.

LUNCH AND CHAPEL FAQ - MARCH 2022
LUNCH - GRADES K-8
Q. When can parents begin having lunch with their children?
A. Beginning Monday, March 28, K-8 parents are welcome to come on campus to have lunch with your child. If you would like to purchase lunch, orders must be placed online by 9:00 a.m. All visitors must sign in at the office and get a visitor's badge whenever they are on campus except when attending chapel.
Q. Can parents bring a lunch for their child?
A. Parents are always welcome to bring a homemade lunch. We will continue with our school policy regarding bringing lunches. From our Family Handbook: Lunch from restaurants is not to be brought to school, delivered, or dropped off in the office. Students who do not comply with this policy will not be permitted to eat with their class. Please note that lunches and snacks brought from home should not include candy or soda.
Q. Will my child have access to a microwave?
A. No. Many of the classes enjoy eating outside and, since there is a limited amount of time for lunch, students do not have much time to eat after waiting in line to use the microwave. We will continue with our policy of students who want a hot lunch to either order it from our food service or use insulated storage items when bringing a hot lunch from home.
Q. Where and when will my child’s class be having lunch?
A. On inclement weather days, all students will eat in the dining facility. Many of the classes like the option of eating outside when the weather permits. Below is the schedule of where and when to find classes on nice weather days.
- Kindergarten @ 11 a.m. - Monday - Thursday in the dining facility, Fridays outside their classrooms
- 1st grade @ 11:30 a.m. - every day in the dining facility
- 2nd grade @ 11:25 a.m. - every day outside their classrooms
- 3rd grade @ 12 p.m. - every day in the dining facility
- 4th grade @ 12:10 p.m. - blue weeks in the dining facility, red weeks outside their classrooms

CHAPEL – GRADES PK3-8
Q. When can parents begin attending chapel with their child?

Q. Where do parents meet their child?

Q. What happens if my child is late to school?
