FAQs-Cafeteria Relocation during Construction
· How will my child’s lunch schedule change?
At this point, we do not expect any changes in the current breakfast or lunch schedule.
· Where will PE classes be held while lunch is in the gym?
PE classes will be held in the outdoor space behind the fourth and fifth grade portables, as well as in the classroom when the weather deems it necessary. This area will be reserved for PE and recess will occur in the Habitat area. Both Dr. Bennett-Walker and Ms. Browning have planned to continue fun, engaging activities for all PE classes during this temporary relocation.
· How will the cafeteria staff prepare food?
The Nutrition Department will deliver boxed breakfasts and lunches daily for the students to eat. The selections will include cereal, sandwiches, wraps, fresh fruit and vegetables, yogurt, chips, juice, milk and other items.
· How can I help during this transition?

We can always use more hands in the cafeteria to help students open lunch containers.
· How long will the cafeteria relocation be in effect?
According to the current phasing plan, the cafeteria will re-open at the end of next September.
· Why can’t the students eat lunch in their classrooms?
In order to provide meal services, the kitchen staff needs access to a hand washing sink and a space to set up meals, even boxed ones. The gym has both space and a sink. Having students pick up their meals and eat in the same space maximizes the 30 minutes allotted for lunch. In addition, classroom teachers have a 30 minute duty-free lunch. You can find the policy here: http://law.justia.com/codes/georgia/2006/20/20-2-218.html All of the tables will be moved to the gym. PE will continue to take place in the gym whenever possible. As in our current cafeteria, the tables and chairs can be folded and moved out of the way.
