PTAs requesting help - how much is too much ?

PA schools are closed on Friday for staff development. This means that I will have my three angels (1 elementary, 1 middle and 1 high)under my feet all day. They are already requesting special outings and treats because there is no school. On top of that, I have just got email from Paly requesting help of food and servers for giving the teachers lunch.
When will the PTA and everyone else realise that I can't do everything and if I am babysitting my own kids, I can't do more. Granted, high schoolers could perhaps organise the lunch themselves with a little parental help, but really....
I don't get catered lunches, why should the teachers - particularly at my expense and my work?
