Morning Arrival and Breakfast Routine at Folwell

With the increased opportunities for clubs and activities in the morning, and an increased emphasis on more students eating breakfast, the morning arrival routine can be amended to be more warm, welcoming and inclusive for students.  By getting breakfast and heading to classrooms we increase the opportunity to build community and relationships while reducing transitions.  Improvements in this routine are student-centered and improve equity.
*Starting on Monday, 10/2, breakfast will be served later, beginning at 8:55, and students will “grab and go” breakfast and eat in the classroom.  This is a common practice throughout our District.  Proper adjustments have been made for supervision and school cleaning routines to ensure safety for students.
*Please still plan to arrive between 8:50 and 9 AM to be on time for school.
*Students line up in their assigned areas outside.  Upon entering the building, students enter the building and either grab their breakfast and go to the classroom, or go directly to the classroom.

*First grade students will now line up for arrival at Door #2, with kindergarten students.
*Running Club and Morning Movers will still begin at 8:40.  At the end of the activities, students enter the building and either grab their breakfast and go to the classroom, or go directly to the classroom.

*Students discussed these changes with their classroom teachers on Friday.

Breakfast is FREE for all kindergarten students, as well as for students who are eligible for free or reduced price lunch!

ANY student can purchase breakfast, using their assigned lunch number! Breakfast is $1.25

The breakfast menu is here:
