Excellence in a Creative Environment for Learning
D-B EXCEL Online Store
Several students have expressed interest in having a DBE store. We have arranged to have a temporary online store through Action Athletics so students, parents, and staff can purchase DBE merchandise (Shirts, hoodies, hats, bags, etc.). The store will be open until midnight on Monday, March 19th. Most shirts have color options. Merchandise will be ordered after the store closes and will be delivered to students at school when it is ready. If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Shaffer at email@example.com.

Outside Food Policy
Per KCS policy, you are NOT allowed to bring in outside food. From this day forward, if you bring in outside food (i.e. donuts, Pals, McDonalds, etc.) you will be asked to stay in the office until your food has been eaten. If you have any questions about this, please see Mrs. Hensley.
From the KCS Student Handbook:
OUTSIDE FOOD AND BEVERAGES: Please do not bring food or beverages to your child from any outside eating establishment. Parents/guardians are invited during the school year to have lunch in the cafeteria with their children. All lunch visits must be pre-approved by the student’s teacher or administration to ensure there is an accurate lunch count. Only parents/guardians are allowed for lunch visits; current identification must be shown upon arrival. Again, please do not bring outside food or beverages to your child.
KCS Board Policy:
Policy 3.500: Food or drink packaged at commercial food establishments shall not be brought in to the cafeteria to be consumed by students during their regular mealtimes.
