Tillman Center Announcement:
Upper School Students are not allowed in the Tillman Center when Middle School Students are using it. Middle School finishes lunch at 11:55. Most of the time there are many Upper School Students either going in or lined up right at the door, waiting to get in before 11:55. PLEASE do not be on the ramp going down to the Tillman Center. Wait in Lampkin Plaza. Let’s give the Middle School Students room to leave! Thank you for your help with this!
Please wear your mask when you go into the Tillman Center and while you wait in line. You may take it off when you get to your seat to eat.
