Murphy to Get New Cafeteria Tables and Benches

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are writing to inform you that the benches and tables in the cafeteria here at Murphy are going to be replaced next week. We are excited to have newer, safer, tables, but the timing is a little unfortunate and we are unsure exactly how long the removal and install is going to take.

As a result, we will be serving sack lunches only next week, Monday, August 24th – Friday, August 28th. The menu will be different each day. Depending on the status of the construction and the weather, students will either eat their sack lunch in the cafeteria as usual, will eat outside as a picnic, or will eat in classrooms.

Please plan accordingly and thank you for understanding,

The Murphy Administration


Estimados padres de familia y tutores,

Le queremos informar que las bancas y las mesas de la cafetería de la primaria Murphy van a ser reemplazadas la siguiente semana. Estamos emocionados de tener mesas nuevas y más seguras pero el tiempo es un poco desafortunado ya que no estamos seguros de cuánto tiempo tardará para la instalación.

Como resultado de esto serviremos los almuerzos en bolsas solamente la próxima semana, lunes 24 de agosto al viernes 28 de agosto. El menú será diferente todos los días. Los estudiantes comerán su almuerzo comerán en sus salones, en la cafetería o afuera como un picnic dependiendo del estado de la construcción y del clima.

Por favor planifique para su mejor conveniencia y le agradecemos su comprensión,

La administración de la primaria Murphy
