We love it, and most especially your child loves it, when a relative joins him/her for lunch!
We would like to preserve your visitation time; therefore, when you come to visit during your lunch,
only the child you are here to visit will be able to join you on the stage for lunch. Other children
will need to remain seated with the remainder of the class at their assigned lunch table. Thank you!
