High Lakes Elementary School
Students will eat breakfast in an assigned spot inside of the classrooms and be 6 feet away from others. As soon as a students finish eating, they will put their mask back on. Overflow areas may also be utilized for breakfast, where students will be assigned seats and be 6 feet from others.
Lunch is a time when the entire classroom/school will be removing their masks to eat so we will be eating outside. Your child will be assigned to a spot that is 6 feet away from others, while the class is eating. Outside lunch will continue daily, except in the event of poor air quality or inclement weather such as rain or low temperatures.
When it is not possible to eat lunch outside, students will eat in their classrooms, spaced 6 feet apart, and be encouraged to stay seated and keep talking to a minimum. When inside, we will work to increase fresh air flow by opening doors and windows as much as possible. There are times that class sizes are too large to allow students to be 6 feet apart in one room. For those classes, the lakes and/or the cafeteria will be utilized to spread students out. There are times in which these overflow areas may also include students from other classes, but students will stay within the same group, just as we do at recess. Immediately upon finishing lunch, or getting up to dump trash, students will put their mask back on.
