Students are required to bring lunch from home, or purchase items from the school on days it is offered. 5th – 9th grade students are required to eat lunch in the gym. South Campus students, grades K-4, will eat in their home rooms or multi-purpose room. Students should throw away all trash and clean their table/desk or surrounding area after they have finished eating lunch.
Parents are required to provide lunch for their students on a daily basis. If at lunch time an elementary student (K-6) does not have lunch, the school will notify the parent and will provide an emergency snack with a charge of a $3.00 fine. If administration sees a pattern of missing lunches for a student, they will hold a meeting with the parent or report the negligence to authorities.
LPA encourages students to bring a water bottle (only water) with them so they can hydrate continually during the day. LPA discourages students from bringing soda to school for lunch. Students are not allowed to bring food, gum, candy, or drinks (excluding water bottles) into the classrooms unless otherwise approved by the teachers.
