Burroughs enjoys a sense of unity possible only in a small school, strengthened by long-standing traditions such as family-style lunch. We have three lunch periods, one for 7th and 8th grades, one for 9th and 10th grades, and one for 11th and 12th grades. Teachers join students for a sit-down hot meal (though our food service also provides lots of other options!). This structured pause in our day facilitates students, especially new ones, getting to know other classmates and faculty.
Sustainability at Burroughs means many things, and it extends to our kitchen and dining room. From composting to converting cooking grease into bio-diesel fuel used by the Super Mileage Vehicle Club, SAGE Dining and the Burroughs staff have found creative ways to collaborate on environmentally friendly efforts. SAGE Dining also uses local ingredients sourced from local vendors, and is committed to the elimination of single-use plates and cutlery during daily lunch service.
Food Allergy Information
We know that food allergies can be life-threatening and we are making every effort to reduce the risk of accidental exposure to foods so we can provide a safe educational environment for all students.
Students with a documented food allergy should download and complete the Food Allergy Action Plan form, which can be submitted to school nurse Casie Tomlinson via email or the nurse portal.
Note: Students who have recently tested positive for COVID-19 will eat lunch in an alternate location through day 10 or until they receive two negative tests 48 hours apart. Click here for more information about our current COVID-19 protocols.
