APS is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our staff and students throughout the entire school day. This includes during lunch, when students will not be able to wear masks while actively eating or drinking. We have developed a plan to protect student health and safety during meals, in accordance with CDC and VDH guidelines for schools.
As of the 2023-2024 school year, Abingdon will provide free breakfast and lunch for all students. Breakfast is served from 7:30-7:50 AM. Lunch is served at various times during the day depending on the grade level of the student(s). To find the daily breakfast and lunch menu, please refer to the APS Menu Site by clicking HERE.
Lunchtime Health and Safety Procedures
Every school will consistently implement the following health and safety measures during lunch:
- Cafeteria or other dining spaces and frequently touched surfaces will be regularly and thoroughly cleaned by custodial staff between mealtimes.
- Students will be able to wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer before and after eating. Time will be provided for hand washing and sanitizer will be readily available for student use.
