Food and Drinks
Restaurant Food Restrictions
Due to Federal Guidelines, students cannot order or have outside food delivered to the school during school hours (7:40 am - 2:20 pm) - even by a parent. If a club or activity plans a special event involving outside food orders, this must be approved with the administration prior to the order being placed. At no time should a scholar leave school grounds during the day to pick up food items. 
Drink Containers
Drinks brought in from outside of school must be sealed and unopened. Drinks from a restaurant, open cans, and water bottles are not permitted. These are to be disposed of prior to entering the school building. 
Lunchroom Etiquette
The Fern Creek Family shares the cafeteria and each student is expected to practice general rules of good behavior. Simple rules of courteous behavior that make the lunchroom pleasant and relaxed include:
  • Observing good dining room standards at the table 
  • Leaving the table and the surrounding area clean and orderly
  • Putting trash in the proper container
  • Remaining seated until the bell or cafeteria supervisor dismisses lunch.
