Students Bringing packed Lunch from home:

Please be aware that milk alone is not covered under the Free lunch program. If your child wants to purchase just a milk without a school lunch they will need to pay .25 cents ea. Each child has a lunch account and you are welcome to deposit funds of any amount with the Kitchen Staff.


Once again our lost and found is over flowing with coats hats and gloves. If your student is missing something please check our lost and found in the office. We also have a large collection of prescription eye glasses that have been turned in.

Leaving a message for your student:

If you have immediate information that needs to reach your child, please do so by contacting the office staff at 573-1600. Changes in directions for a child regarding plans to get home should be provided to the office as soon as known. We will try our best but cannot guarantee a message called in at the last minute can reach the student before the buses depart. Teachers do not answer the phone during instructional times and often do not have time to check their voicemail until after the instructional day is over. Teachers can also be reached by e-mail following this sequence:
