Aprons, lunch detention slips will be found in the cafeteria concession stand. Cafeteria Rules are sit and stay seated in their chair. They do not get up for any reason until the horn is blown. When the horn blows students get up and throw their trash. They are to return to their table and raise their hands to have you check the floor, chairs, and table for their group. You can dismiss them at that time. Please use lunch detention forms for any one who is misbehaving or is very sloppy with their food. Leave the detention slips in the concession stand area. The tables must be washed. Then 6th grade boys will put the chairs up on the table for you to sweep the floor. Chairs need put down. Feel free to grab some extra volunteers 🙂
