Afternoon Check-Out & Dismissal

Outside Vendor Food

Outside food and beverages from vendors should not be sent to the school by delivery drivers or brought by families.  If your student forgets their lunch, families can bring money for students to purchase a lunch or bring a packed lunch from home.  We appreciate your assistance in supporting us in this matter.
