    Lunch & Learn Program Information Sheet

  • Guidelines:

    • Douglas Anderson is a closed campus during the school day.  Students are required to remain on campus for Lunch and Learn.

    • Food is not allowed in the gym, hallways, general common areas, or bathrooms.

    • Hallways are for transitioning; students should not be seated, standing, or congregating in hallways during Lunch and Learn time.

    • Early dismissals are strongly discouraged during Lunch and Learn as making school-wide announcements can be distracting.

    • This time is designed for students to have lunch and engage in either art or academic support on a daily basis.

    • It is the student’s responsibility to use Lunch and Learn as designed to help achieve success in academics and arts.

    • Students must sign in daily to each teacher’s classroom they attend for Lunch and Learn.

    • Hall passes are required for students to transition outside of the designated transition times.

    • Students who are on academic probation are required to attend at least one remediation session per day.  This is monitored through the Counseling Office.
