TJ parents, we love having you visit your students for lunch during the school day. Since we have begun Our new semester, here are a few reminders that will help make the visit an enjoyable experience for everyone:
Please remember to bring your picture ID with you.
If you wish, your student may bring one friend with him or her to eat with you.
We do have limited seating and seating is on a first come basis.
In accordance with the LCPS Nutrition Policy, please do not share food with other students. While we appreciate your generosity, because of food allergies and other concerns, we kindly request that you only provide food and drinks to your own Patriot.
We appreciate your assistance with this, and again, we hope you are able to join us for lunch one day this semester!

Thank you for your support and we are proud to partner with you to make Our Patriots successful! Have a warm evening.

We Believe, One Team, One Dream,

Dr. C
