Cafeterias & Student Nutrition
If allowed and deemed safe for students, cafeterias will be open to serve breakfast and lunch daily. The physical setup for the cafeteria and the schedule will be adjusted to reduce the number of students in the cafeteria at one time. Each campus cafeteria space will be evaluated to ensure social distancing. Some students will be eating in the cafeteria, spaced according to the recommended guidelines, and other students may eat in the classroom if necessary. All school meals will be served by employees, meaning student self-serve tables will not be used.
To minimize possible outside exposure and to allow for adequate physical distancing for students during meal times, school protocols include no food/gift deliveries will be accepted and non-essential visitors will not be allowed on campuses or in cafeterias.
