Meals in the Classroom

While eating meals in the classroom is not ideal, we appreciate the effort of our teachers and staff to care for one another and keep each other safe.  We hope that meals in the classroom will be a positive experience for our students and that it remains an integral social component to our students' day.  Please check out the following resources to make the most of mealtime in the classroom.
