The C.A.F.E. (Cafeteria Alternative For Everyone) is a different option for high school students during their lunchtime. We have the old guidance space and small gym (for Basketball). We had these spaces open for the lunch blocks and provide areas where kids could hang out with friends, listen to or play music, games, get help with homework or just relax in a supervised setting. We will be returning in the Fall.
