Arlington Community High School Dining Protocols

At Arlington Community High School, we are committed to providing both indoor and outdoor spaces for students to eat lunch, and to distance as much as possible while eating. The following outlines our dining protocols.

  • Our school will make use of multiple spaces – indoors and outdoors – to maximize distancing and ensure student health and safety.
    • Students are able to dine outside daily, weather permitting.
    • Students should wash hands before and after meals and distance while eating is encouraged.
    • During inclement weather or when dining inside, students will eat in the gallery area should they choose to stay in the building for lunch.
