    Cafeteria Expectations!

    At Garfield most students have the opportunity to be serve two meals... breakfast and lunch.  If students arrive at school with plenty of time before the bell rings, they will be served breakfast. Each family must fill out a lunch application online or make arrangements with the cafeteria supervisor to add money on to their students account. (More information about this can be found on the District Site's Nutrition Services web page). All students enrolled at Garfield will be provided a lunch with supervision by school staff.

    District employees are the only adults that are allowed inside the cafeteria.  Teachers and recreation aides assist our young students in the procedures of getting and completing their meals. During the first week of school, we make an exception for our kindergarten parents and allow them to help for the first few days. After that, we want our students to begin to build their independence and  responsibility  for feeding themselves, with assistance from staff when needed.

    Parents, please make sure you wait outside the cafeteria, away from the doors, while your child(ren) are eating. At Garfield, we have the huge job of  serving over 750 students in our cafeteria daily. The procedures that are in place help us to get the students inside, allow them time to eat at a comfortable pace and try to keep the amount of time the students are waiting outside to a minimal.  Your help in following these procedures is appreciated. 

    If you have any questions about these procedures, please see the principal.
