Here is an important question you may have asked yourself, “What do I do? I have forgotten my lunch.”  If you realize you have forgotten your lunch before it is time to eat, you should go to the house office, contact your parent, and check the lunch delivery table in the cafeteria during your lunch period.  If you realize you have forgotten your lunch and you are in the cafeteria, your first stop should be to check the lunch delivery table in case your parent dropped off your lunch at school.  Remember, if you have forgotten your lunch, you should check the lunch delivery table in the cafeteria.
