Food Service News

We recently received notice that our waiver has been extended. This allows us to offer students take-and-go meals (rather than requiring meals to be eaten in the building)

After 4th period is done, students may proceed to the cafeteria to pick up lunch. They may eat their lunch in the cafeteria or they may take their lunch home right away. We will be unable to allow parents, family, and community members into the building to join us in the cafeteria.

Summer School Daily Schedule


Due to the extension of a food service waiver, we are allowed to serve take-and-go lunches for our students. This means that we do not have to require students to eat lunch at the school. Because of this, we are able to return to our "normal" summer school schedule!!!! We will still offer 1 lunch period for those students who are here in the afternoons and for those that need a place to eat. Unfortunately, we still cannot allow our family and community friends to come into the building to eat.

The schedule is posted below:

8:00-8:55 Period 1

9:00-9:55 Period 2

10:00-10:55 Period 3

11:00-11:55 Period 4

11:55-12:30 LUNCH

12:30-2:30 ELL

11:00-11:30 Lunch

Infinite Campus Registration Instructions

Attached is a document that reviews how to register your child for summer school through Infinite Campus. A few tips that will be helpful for you:

1. It will be important to fill up the class requests in order to allow your student to have a full schedule. The system will allow you to choose 8 "units" of classes as your first choices. Because sections of classes have a cap on the number of students, it will be beneficial to fill up with as many choices as possible...use all 8!

2. The system will also allow you to choose "Alternate Classes". It will be beneficial to select at least 2 "units" of alternate classes as well.

3. You will see that each course has a specified grade level range. Please use your child's grade that they will be in NEXT YEAR: Fall, 2021.

4. We will have the High School LMC open on MONDAY, APRIL 12 from 4pm-7pm for families that need assistance with registration and who need access to technology. This will be by appointment to ensure social distancing. Please complete the following sign-up if you are interested in coming into the High School on April 12. (See link below)


Class Spotlight: Swim Lessons

We are excited to offer the ever-popular swim classes again this summer! There are 6 levels of swim lessons: descriptions may be found in the course catalog that has already been published. Thank you to Lorelei Bowen from the WAC for her collaboration and assistance.

For safety and health reasons, we have capped the number of students in each section. We will also have locker room attendants who will be responsible for ensuring social distance in the locker rooms, and for cleaning and disinfecting between classes.
