***Exciting news, you may eat lunch in the cafeteria this year. Please remember you may eat lunch outside in the Quad under the tent. 

***Welcome back Upper School’ers, we are looking forward to providing you great food service options with a return to a more normal pre-March 2020 service standard

Here are a couple of quick notes, as far as the dining hall goes.

1. All stations are open. This includes Fulls revive deli, salad bar, soup station, drink station, panini presses, drink coolers, fruit and yogurt bar.  

2. In an effort to provide an extra layer of sanitation, I ask that anytime you use, a shelf service station that you put on disposable glove that will be located by the serving lines, salad bar and panini presses.

3. Please know your PIN number. This will help move the cashier lines more quickly. It does slow down, when we have to look up your account by name. Your PIN number is the last 4 digits of your student ID

4. The dining hall is open as far as a place where you may eat your lunch.  HOWEVER, I do need one favor. I need all upper school students to begin exiting the seating area before 11:30am (Yes, I know you still have 10 minutes left for your lunch) However, our 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders will be arriving and sitting in the dining hall beginning at 11:30

5. Please be patient with lines and try to maintain 3 feet distance.  The first few days, the lines are always typically a bit longer.

6. The cafeteria opens at 7am and closes at 3pm.  Breakfast is served from 7:15-9:30. Snacks and drinks are available all day

7. Enjoy the food 🙂

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask me. I can be found in the cafeteria almost all the time or you can email at
