What is the outdoor lunch plan? What steps is APS taking to provide more consistent outdoor lunch at every school?

posted Aug 27

We remain committed to protecting the health and safety of our students during lunchtime and throughout the day. Every school is providing outdoor lunch and has either a full or partial outdoor lunch plan. Every school also has consistent measures in place to keep indoor dining as safe as possible. We have conducted an audit of needs by school location related to outdoor lunch opportunities and will be taking two steps: 1) hiring more staff to monitor lunch whether indoors or out and 2) working with the county to obtain the needed materials some schools have requested, such as tents or other structures to provide outside lunch for more students, rain or shine.
