Lunch Charges

As of Monday, May 9th, all lunch charges (negative balances) need to be paid, and a student will no longer be able to charge (owe money) on their lunch. Please make sure your child has money on their account accordingly. You can continue to send in cash or checks to apply to their accounts through the last day of school.

A note from the Clinic...

If your child has any medications in the clinic, please make arrangements to pick them up by the last day of school. Any medication that is not picked up will be discarded by our School Resource Officer. Remember students CANNOT take medications home with them. Please contact Brooke Burnett in the clinic if you have any questions.
