AISD high schools will be starting MegaLunch on Monday, September 14th.
A schedule allowing for this one hour block of time is being introduced
in order to allow our students access to tutorials during the school day.
During MegaLunch, students will have time to eat lunch, attend tutorials,
touch base with teachers classwork, attend organization meetings and enjoy
teacher lead interest clubs. Clubs range from UIL Calculus to Ping Pong!
There is something for everyone. We strongly encourage our students
to take advantage of this academic opportunity. The campus will remain a closed
campus during the lunch hour. Parents who bring lunch for their child
will be asked to deliver those meals to the front attendance office.
Students can pick up their lunch during the lunch period. We also need to
remind everyone that parents can only bring lunch for their own child.
