Lunch Buddies – Frequently Asked Questions


What do I do when I arrive?

Head straight to the front office where you will sign in as a volunteer and receive a name-tag.  Once you’ve signed in, head to the cafeteria where you will find an apron and gloves to help protect your clothing and hands.  These are typically located on a cart against the far wall directly opposite the entry door.

How will I know if a child needs help?

The kiddos know to raise their hands if they need assistance.

What if a child asks to use the restroom?

Ask the child if he/she can wait until after lunch, and if not, please escort them to the restroom after letting the other Lunch Buddy Volunteer(s) know that you are doing so.

What do I do at the end of my shift?

Please turn in your apron at the cart and check-out at the front office. 

What do I do if I need to change or cancel my shift?

If you need to cancel, please reach out to the other parents in your child’s class to try and find a replacement.    If you need to change your shift, please do so using the same sign-up sheet you used initially.       

Do I need to bring anything to my shift?

No, the cafeteria is equipped with aprons, gloves, and scissors for your use. 

Can I volunteer at other times throughout the school year?

Yes, simply email LFBYRD@MAC.COM with your name and email address, and you can be added to the list of back-up volunteers when slots are not full for any given week.

Lunch Buddy Schedule 2016/2017

The lunch buddies program consists of parent volunteers helping out in the cafeteria. This program enables the teachers to have a well-deserved break during the lunch period. This is a great way to spend some time with your child during school hours. Lunch buddies help children open containers and packages as needed and wipe down tables. Volunteers are needed for 1 or 2 hour slots from 10:20 AM-11:20 AM and from 11:20 AM-12:20 PM. Two volunteers per time slot is the goal.

See the schedule below for your responsible week(s) and set up a sign up sheet (genius) with your class so that the lunch room will be filled with the appropriate number of volunteers for your week. Your class does not have to staff for dates listed in parentheses. If you are unable to fill your scheduled week or have any questions, please contact Lisa Byrd (Lisa.Byrd@hartmansimons.com or 404-932-1903).

Middle School Volleyball Tryouts

Due to CCHS needing to prepare the gym for registration day, we have had to cancel middle school volleyball tryouts on August 3rd. Tryouts will now be on August 1st, 2nd, and 4th from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm in the CCHS gym. We are sorry for the inconvenience but hope that all interested players are able to attend at least two days of tryouts.

The CCHS volleyball coaches will be holding a Middle School Clinic on July 25th, 26th, and 27th from 9 am until 12 pm in the CCHS gym. Cost of this clinic is $125. Registration is open on the Chamblee volleyball website (http://chambleevolleyball.weebly.com).
