Please help us with traffic flow

Because of our location arrival and dismissal are challenging. There are a few things that can help:


  • No Parking Zones: Please observe designated No Parking zone on W Cedar heading away from Bristol. Cars parked here slow traffic flow and create an unsafe situation at the crosswalk. Thank You!
  • U-Turns: Please do not make U-Turns on Gray or in the intersection or Gray & Cedar during arrival or dismissal. This slows traffic flow and creates an unsafe situation at the crosswalk. Thank You!
  • Drop & Go: Please refrain from parking and exiting your vehicle during arrival & dismissal times. If you must park please pull all the way down Gray or park on a neighboring street.


Thank you!

What's for Breakfast & Lunch?

Find Breakfast and Lunch menus here: https://webster.nutrislice.com

Arrival Reminder

Just a friendly reminder that doors open at 8am and students should not arrive prior to 8am unless they are in a supervised club or adventure club. Thanks!

Allergies & Lunch Room Seating

To ensure the health and safety of all students during lunch, and to make sure everyone feels included, we provide tree nut & peanut free tables/seating on each side of the cafeteria. These tables are clearly marked. Please note that students who buy school lunches are allowed to sit at the peanut free tables. If your child brings a lunch from home and wants to sit at the peanut free table with a friend, they need to check with an adult to ensure their lunch doesn't contain any nuts.


Thank you!

Office Contact Information
