Want to eat lunch with your student at FSE? 

Please follow the lunch sign-up instructions below:

1. All lunch visitors must complete a 2022-2023 Volunteer Application at least three days before their first visit. The Volunteer Application only needs to be filled out once during the 2022-2023 school year. You may access an application HERE if you have not yet completed a Volunteer Application for this year. Guests may eat with their students once the application has been processed and approved. 

2. Click the link below to sign-up.  Guests must sign-up at least two days in advance. This helps us better accommodate our guests and seating.


3. When you arrive for lunch, you will ring the doorbell off the loading dock or the Prime Time Door. We will have a list of everyone that is eating lunch that day down in the cafeteria. You will only be on the list if you have done the steps above. Once you arrive, you will be asked to show your ID, sign-in, and receive a visitor sticker that must be worn while in the building. When lunch is over, you will exit through the Prime Time doors to the parking lot.
