FLIK Dining Services
FLIK Dining Services at POPCS will continue.
Dining Hall procedures, seating, and
schedules will follow social distancing
guidelines. Faculty and staff, and students
(grades K -12) will be required to wear their
face coverings to and from the Dining Hall
and waiting for food to be plated. They may
only remove their mask in the Dining Hall
when they are seated and eating. FLIK
service workers will prepare plated trays for
each student. All self-serve options (salad
bar, sandwich station) are closed. Pre-pack-
aged sandwiches and salads will be avail-
able. All items used including plates, uten-
sils, and cups, will be disposable. FLIK will
comply with all applicable local, state, and
national health laws, including sanitizing
the serving line between classes. FLIK
employees and service workers will wear a
face mask or cloth face covering. Able
Services will clean and sanitize student
dining hall seating between lunch groups.
Chapel Services are an integral part of the
POPCS experience. We are committed to all
students participating in weekly chapel
services. As a school, we have four different
Chapel experiences based on the school
divisions. As the year begins, we will allow
designated grade level/classes, that are
socially distanced, to participate and lead
Chapel services in the Fine Arts Center
auditorium. Chapel services will be
live-streamed for participation and worship
in individual classrooms.
As we begin the 2020-2021 school year, ﬁeld
trips, and the Upper School retreat, are on
hold. Options to reimagine these and other
gatherings to be safely held on campus will
Theatre, Band, Choir, Cheer, Drill and
Co-curricular competitions governed by the
Texas Association of Private and Parochial
Schools (TAPPS) are currently scheduled to
begin on August 18. For more information

Large Group Gatherings
Limited group activities may be reimagined
to take place outdoors, within large meeting
spaces (gym or Fine Arts Center auditorium),
or occur in a virtual format. We will follow
local health initiatives and guidelines while
encouraging social distancing.
Physical activity is vital for our children.
Students will continue to participate in
recess and physical education classes.
Whenever possible, physical education
classes and recess will be held outdoors to
allow students more space to spread out.
Hand sanitizer and access to handwashing
will be provided before and after physical
activities. Shared equipment will be avoid-
ed when possible and will be regularly
cleaned and disinfected when not possible.
