Just a reminder — Parents are welcome to join their student for lunch at the tables outside of the cafeteria or main office. However, to avoid disruption to the learning environment, the office would prefer not to interrupt classes by calling students down outside of their scheduled lunch time. Please check with your student for the time they go to the cafeteria. ~Thank you ~
