So what does Lunch Duty entail…

Each St. Elizabeth School Family is responsible for signing up for Lunch Duty 3 times per child in grades K-8. Feel free to sign up for more than 3 times per child. Pre K Parents are very welcome to volunteer for lunch duty as well.

You will receive a reminder from SUG before your scheduled shift (please make sure the SUG settings are so that you receive a reminder message).

You are required to arrive at school by 11:00- this is very important since there is prep work that needs to be done before the children come to the cafeteria.  Arriving late makes more work for the head lunch parents and other volunteers who arrive on time. If you are more than 15 minutes late, your time may not count.  You should be finished by 12:45.

Please sign in (print your name and arrival time) on the sign in form at Mrs. Palmieri’s office. Then proceed down to the cafeteria.

The head lunch parent will guide you in the tasks that need to be done. We greatly thank and appreciate them for their assistance each week throughout the year.

  • Snacks prepared and set out
  • Lunch entrées assembled, labeled, and/or sorted
  • Lunch boxes, milk cartons, napkins, straws, allergy placemats/cones, etc. put out
  • Distribute the food/snacks
  • When the children arrive, no less than 2 volunteers should be in the cafeteria with the children to provide supervision during the lunches
  • Wipe down tables (food and garbage picked up) and replenish snacks for second lunch

If for some reason you cannot volunteer on the date you signed up for, you are responsible for finding a substitute of your own or using a paid sub and paying them $20 per day.  Please let Denise LaGalia know if you can be a sub.

If you, or a sub, do not show up on the date you signed up for, you will be charged a fine via FACTS.  You will be fined $50 for the first miss, $75 for the second, $125 for each subsequent miss.

If you have any questions or cannot find a sub, please contact Denise LaGalia prior to the day of your shift at 201-657-1154.  Please do not contact Mrs. Palmieri to ask her to find you a sub.

Our lunch program is also a huge fundraiser for our school and we greatly appreciate everyone’s help in making it a success, as well as supervising our children in a loving and safe manner.
