Cafeteria Expectations: This is the same for breakfast. If you are not eating breakfast or if you are finished, you are to go back outside.
Clean and Courteous
Remain seated (in proper seats)
Student conduct in the lunchroom shall be in accordance with standards of good eating and table manners.
Students should talk quietly and remain in their seats-no switching seats.
Students should keep their food within their own space: throwing food will not be tolerated.
Students will be responsible for placing garbage in the designated area and cleaning up the table and floor area around them before being dismissed.
Food and drinks must stay inside the cafeteria.
A quick note about waiting for the buses after school. Please be sure to stay on the sidewalk and out of the road.
Our bus drivers have also noticed more friends missing their bus because they were busy chatting or playing in the yard area, so be sure to pay attention to the buses and catch yours as it comes through!
I know with the weather getting nicer and it’s fun to play, but it’s important to be responsible as well.
Do you have what it takes to be a babysitter? Iowa State University Extension is hosting a babysitting course Monday, February 21 from 8:45-3:30 (we have no school due to Presidents Day).
