Breakfast is served in the classroom at 7:40am for elementary.

Breakfast is served in the classroom at 8:49am for Jr/Sr High.

All students, including PK, will not go to the cafeteria at 7:40am as in the past. Please visit with your child's campus to see where you may drop off your child at 7:40am.  

As always, home lunches are welcomed, but parents are asked to please send home lunches with their child in the morning.  As previously stated, no microwaves will be available in the cafeteria for students for now, so a thermos is encouraged for those items requiring hot hold.  

Snack-Ateria is avialable for Jr/Sr High!  

Parents are encouraged to use  My School Bucks to put money in their child's meal account. My School Bucks is a useful tool that allows parents to see what their child is purchasing (once the snack bar gets rolling again) and can also send parent alerts for their child's account balance. Money in student's accounts can be used for regular lunch a la carte items and snack bar (once operating). Students are not allowed to charge snack bar items. Charges are allowed up to $25 only.
