INDIANAPOLIS – In past school years, kids sat together at a table in the cafeteria, some from their own class, some from others. Some even shared food with each other.
Now, in schools open for in-person instruction, some students will eat lunch in their classrooms or will sit with their classes in the cafeteria as schools try to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Schools that opened early in central Indiana provide a hint of what others across the country can expect as they enact various lunchtime safety measures, including prepackaging meals and frequently cleaning the lunchroom.
Having opened in late July for in-person instruction, Avon Community School makes children in kindergarten through sixth grade sit with their classes at lunch.
