Eating Lunch with Your Student at School? We have Private Dining!

Our Mustang Cafe now offers Private Dining for you and your student when you come to eat with him or her! The Cafe is almost at capacity in every lunch period, so we have added 4 booths right outside the Mustang Cafe for you and your student (please, just your own student) to eat lunch!

Headphones $2

We use our chromebooks on an almost daily basis. As a result, earbuds and headphones can take a beating. If your student needs a replacement set of school-issued headphones, they are available in the library for $2.
