Touch of SAGE Dining App

Touch of SAGE Dining App

 

We are excited to start 2021-2022 with as normal a lunch service as possible, unless local authorities stipulate otherwise. Given that, following are things we look forward to in the dining room:

  • Easier and more traditional online SAGE menu format
  • Self-service/specialty stations (drinks, salad, soup, sandwich, condiments, panini (middle and high school), cereal, dessert, featured foods)
  • Specialty salads instructions and “demo plates” on the salad bar with daily featured salads
  • Easier lower school self-service (veggie bags, sliced fruit, yogurt, cheese sticks, small salads, small water bottles)
  • Weekly offerings of cookies or special treats
  • Larger initial entrée portions for middle and high school students with balanced plate selections
  • Return of the additional entrée service station in front of the Roost
  • Return of the pasta station with sauce rotation now paired with a protein
  • Daily availability of baked chicken for adults
  • Daily rotation of a One-Plate Allergy option, safe for all common allergies
  • Future plans for student-led initiatives regarding plastic recycling and vegetable scrap composting in our garden

Lunch Service

With return to normal seating, lunch service times are as follows:

  • Lower school: 10:20-11:30 a.m. (staggered entry/exit by grade)
  • High school: 11:33 a.m.-12:20 p.m.
  • Middle school: 12:35-1:15 p.m. non-chapel days (12:45-1:25 p.m. chapel days); middle school eighth-grade recess/lunch rotation continued

Students will be encouraged to:

  • Wash/sanitize their hands before and after lunch.
  • Stay in line.
  • Make balanced plate selections (protein, vegetable, starch, fresh salad/fruit) and know their selection.
  • Place used plastic cups and water bottles in recycling bins provided at the end of lunch.

We encourage you to download the new SAGE Dining app on your mobile phone!
