Each family is required to serve lunch-recess duty on five days of the school year. Parents may pay $150 before the year to opt out, or pay $40 for each day that the family does not serve. A sign-up calendar is available from summer through the school year. Volunteers work with staff supervisors during this 40-minute period. Coverage of lunch and recess allows teachers to participate in structured working lunches dedicated to helping students. See the top of page 20 of the Parent Handbook for more information about the Student of Concern (SOC) meetings.
