Two-hour delays alter everyone's schedule, both at home and in school. One of the major puzzle pieces for us is ensuring all students have adequate lunch time. In order to feed all of our students and not interrupt other scheduled classes, we need the “side table” to accommodate all students in a shorter window of time. Unfortunately, that means parents will not be able to join their student for lunch on a two-hour delay. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
