Student Lunches: In an effort to maintain an orderly lunch environment, we are requesting that parents refrain from or limit bringing take-out (restaurant/fast food) for student lunches. If students forget their lunch or lunch money, we have an established school account, thanks to our PTSA, which will allow students to have a school lunch.
Student Check-Out Reminder- please refrain from checking your child out of school or requesting transportation changes after 2:30, as we can’t guarantee that information will be shared with your child during this short time frame prior to school dismissing at 3:00.
