Lunch Volunteers Needed at Brook Forest

As the school moves toward opening for full days on September 8th, they have come to us with a request for parent help to provide support to the teachers during the lunch periods. We have had lunch volunteers in years past but it will look a bit different this year. The students will be eating lunch in their homerooms and they are requesting help from the parents to monitor the lunch period, assist with distribution of boxed lunches and clean up/sanitizing of desks. The lunch period runs from 12pm-1:30pm. We are including a sign up link below to get an idea of how many volunteers are willing to help and on which days. We will work on a schedule and provide further details once we know more definitively what the school needs are.

Our teachers are working so hard, going above and beyond, for our kids. Let’s show them that we are here for them in this small way. Please use the link below to indicate your willingness to help and on which days you might be available. We will make every effort to place you in your child’s homeroom however, we will want to make sure that all needs are fulfilled.
