Lunch policy is as follows:

All students are entitled to a free breakfast, and students can receive lunch (free, reduced or full-price) according to School District of Philadelphia regulations.

Students may be in the Cafe, on the second floor up to the Fire Doors (including the Library,) or in a classroom with permission (and attendance) of a teacher.

Students are not allowed outside for lunch without express written permission from SLA administration.

There is no "passing time" between the lunch periods (SLA lunches are 65 minutes long, longer than most high school lunches,) therefore students should plan accordingly and not be late to their class after lunch.

Students are expected to respect the school and assist SLA staff in keeping the lunch areas clean.
