Don't Forget Breakfast!
Kids need breakfast to refuel their brains and bodies. By recharging the brain and body, kids will be more efficient in just about everything they do. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Short on time in the mornings? Have your child eat breakfast at school. Breakfast is 8:20-8:40 each morning in the school cafeteria. Breakfast is $1.30 (.30 for eligible students). Please discuss with your child if they are to eat breakfast at school. If you have any questions regarding breakfast please contact our Food Service Director at 317-838-3662.
Here Comes the Bus!
- See the location of your child’s bus both before and after school
- Confirm that your child’s bus has arrived at the bus stop and at school
- Receive a push notification* or email message when the bus is a certain distance from your stop
