Principal Matt Fockler says the turnout for the event was exceptional. 

“It was extremely nice to see high school students have breakfast at school with their parents,” he says. “The bells were ringing, we did announcements, they saw labs, and kids were in the hallways. They
get that actual school day experience.”
