Lunch at RPDS
Lunch for Riverside students is an outdoor event! We take advantage of the beautiful Florida weather, a child's love for the outdoors, the fun and excitement of a picnic lunch with favorite friends, and the sheer joy of free play. Our campus location also provides convenience to parents who wish to stop by and join their child for lunch.
Riverside's four playgrounds provide generous outdoor space for outdoor lunch and recess. Most students bring their morning snack and lunch to school; however, a lunch order option is available five days per week. Lunch orders are provided by area vendors such as Jimmy John's, Chick-fil-A, The Bearded Pig, Smoothie King, Al's Pizza, and Larry's Giant Subs. The rotations change so students can opt in or out depending upon preference throughout the school year. Milk and water orders are also included in the lunch menu option.
Inclement weather, thankfully infrequent, shifts our lunch experience indoors within homeroom classes.
PreK 3 and PreK 4 students are invited to stay beyond the academic morning for lunch with classmates and additional play from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. This complimentary extension of the day is called Lunch Bunch. Please click here for more information.
