Updated Shared Food Procedures (March 16, 2021)


Food can be brought to school from restaurants/bakeries/grocery stores with the following guidelines:

  1. The person bringing the food is wearing a well fitted mask (e.g., the parent) and hands the food off to staff outdoors.
  2. The food will only be shared within the cohort.
  3. The food will be distributed/plated by a designated staff person who has washed their hands and is wearing a mask. No buffet or family style serving among the cohort.
  4. Staff (masked and with clean hands) prepping food in the kitchen without kids present is fine—e.g., pancakes.
  5. No food made at home for the time being. (We can't monitor respiratory and hand hygiene during food prep at community members' homes.)
