Third hour teachers should have their students wash their hands at the end of class, then escort them to the special events room. Have them place their bags along the walls and sit and wait for their mom to give the go ahead to start eating.
It is chaotic is kids bust in the room and start running around. I get it. I'm ready to move around too after classes, but let's train the kids to eat first, then play. It makes a lot less mess too.
Parents, please make sure your children clean up after themselves and do not leave food or wrappers on the floor.
The kids should not run around the special events room, get on the stage, hide among the stacks of chairs, go in the office, play in the hallways, or play in other classrooms.
Children may go outside provided a parent is with them and if the moms of younger kids know their child(ren) have gone outside.
