    How does shadowing work?

    Your student will be partnered with one of our students and will attend all or part of three classes, have lunch and attend a Crew meeting.

    Lunch Information:

    Students may bring a lunch from home or buy one at OWL.  If they attend another St. Paul Public School and have money in their lunch account, we can simply charge their account.  If not, they can purchase a meal for $3.90.

    Shadow times and pick-up:

    Shadowing begins at 8:30 AM.  Families must return at 12:40 PM to pick up their student from the main entrance.
