Lowell implemented a Community Breakfast with the start of the 2008-2009 school year. All students will begin the day in the cafeteria, where they may purchase the school-provided breakfast (free- and reduced- meal prices apply) or bring to eat from home if they wish.
The cafeteria will open at 7:30 a.m. All students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade should report directly to the cafeteria upon arrival between 7:30 and 7:45, using the front entry doors near the cafeteria (facing Atwood Avenue). They will gather with their classmates in the cafeteria, where teachers will take role call and lunch counts. Teachers will lead the Kindergarten through 2nd grade students to their classrooms at 7:45. (There will be no playground recess before the start of school.)
Students in grades 3-5 should meet their teacher and classmates on the playground between 7:30 and 7:43. (There will be no staff on the playground before 7:30.) Students should line up with their class--there is no supervised playtime. When the bell rings at 7:43, teachers will lead these classes first to their lockers, then down to the cafeteria. If it is raining, students in grades 3-5 should enter the building and go to the gym.
End of the School Day
Please meet your child/children on the playground promptly at the end of the school day (1:05 p.m. Mondays, 2:37 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays). Classroom teachers will walk students in after school programs and those riding the bus to their meeting points or buses. Students not attending the Safe Haven program should not be on the playground after school as there is no adult supervision for them.
