Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our Thanksgiving luncheon will be held on Wednesday, November 15th. We will be selling tickets for family members between October 16th and November 10th. Tickets will not be sold after November 10th. Each ticket will cost $7.00.

Due to space and availability of food, we will be limiting tickets to two per family. If families do not wish to eat the food prepared by the cafeteria, outside food may be brought in, but students are not able to share food with each other unless they are family. Due to new safety and security measures across the district, we will be adding additional processes to the purchasing of tickets. In order to receive a ticket, each adult who will be needing a ticket will need to come into the school between October 16th and November 10th and present their ID. Tickets will only be given to those who are either parents/guardians of students or are on the emergency contact list. If an adult comes to school for a ticket that is not on the list for a child, the parent/guardian will need to come into the building with the adult to verify that he or she can purchase a ticket. Once a ticket has been purchased, we will mark down who purchased a ticket and which student(s) the adult will be eating with.

On the day of the Thanksgiving luncheon, there will be tables set up for check-in. Those attending the luncheon will present their ticket and ID and our staff will verify that the adult is on the list then that adult will be given a visitor’s badge and be able to enter the cafeteria for lunch. If for any reason a ticket has to be switched out with another adult, that adult will need to sign in through our reception desk by showing their ID so that we can verify that they are on the approved list for the child.

Thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility in ensuring that our students and families have a fun, but safe Thanksgiving luncheon. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Yours in Education,

Jennifer McIntyre
