A well-balanced lunch is catered daily by Fresh Ideas and lunch fees are included in school tuition.

Lunch is a time for community and conversation. Teachers join students for lunch and parents are welcome to join their child for lunch on occasion. Students are encouraged to take their time and relax during lunch. We strive to create a “restaurant atmosphere” and students are asked to demonstrate good manners while eating together and follow the posted rules. When students are finished eating lunch, students are asked to take their trays and silverware to the kitchen and then clean their table spot and chairs with a spray bottle and a cloth. Students gain practical life skills and a sense of responsibility through this routine.

After 20 minutes, students are dismissed for recess, although they are welcome to spend more time if desired to eat lunch. Students enjoy up to 25 minutes of recess after lunch, which is supervised by faculty and staff.
