Lunch Next Year
All students currently receive free school meals supported by federal funding due to the pandemic. This funding is set to end on June 30, 2022. In order to receive free or reduced-price meals for next school year, families need to submit a meal benefits application.
All families must complete an application for the 2022-2023 school year starting July 1 in order to receive benefits. Please allow 10 business days for processing.
For every student that turns in the free and reduced meals application and qualifies, the school also receives federal funds that benefit the students and teachers at the school.
We need you to complete a 2022-2023 meal benefits application so our school can be eligible for extra funding next year. If you have not completed a free or reduced-price meal application and think your child may be eligible, pick up an application at your child’s school or apply online. Paper applications can also be requested by calling 919-588-3535 or 919-856-2920 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Briarcliff Elementary 2022 Field Day
Field Day Organization K-1 will divide their classes in half. Teachers will guide one group and either a TA or parent volunteer will guide the other. Each group will start on a specific number and rotate every 5 minutes. I will use the fog horn when it’s time to switch games. 2-3 & 4-5 will divide your class into partners (they may choose their partners if you wish) with whom they will go to the stations. They Must stay with their partner while participation in Field Day. If there is an odd number, try to pair the extra person with someone from another class. If not put 3 in a group and they can take turns participating with each other. There are 20 stations around the playground. K-1 will have 2 hours because it takes longer to rotate centers. There is no limit as to how many times they can do a station, with the exception of our dunking station, which can only be done 1 time. Appropriate shoes/clothing must be worn – play clothes and tennis shoes. No flip flops, sandals, crocs,
