Lunchroom Visitation

Parents, our school is so fortunate to have many parents and mentors join our students for lunch each day! Please note that the high top tables and the visitors’ room are reserved for parents who wish to eat with their child(ren) as a family. If you would like to sit with your student and their classmates, you are welcome to join them at their classroom table as part of our school family. Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions! ~Dr. Stevens
