School lunches, long a fun hallmark of youth friendships and the school day, have transformed into a daily period of anxiety for many families and teachers during the pandemic. It’s the one time during the day when children can be inside maskless.
Indoor lunch period precautions include spacing kids out, staggering their seating, making sure they’re facing the same direction, improving ventilation and assigning seating.
Since mid-September, students have the option of eating their lunch outdoors under a tent, where COVID-19 is less likely to spread. Make sure your student dresses warmly each day so they can take advantage of this option!
