Distance Learners Weekly Meal Pick-Up Change

Please email the cafeteria manager (Amber Hartley- by 8:00am on Thursday of the week prior to meal pick-up to inform them of the quantity of each meal being picked up. Breakfast and lunch are to be picked up at the same time. Parents must state how many of each meal they will need. The student(s) registered name must be provided. This will allow cafeteria managers to verify the student is in the system. Additionally, this will ensure we have the correct quantity of To-Go meals prepared.

Quarantining and School Transition to Distance Learning

If you have a child that will need to quarantine due to being a close contact or testing positive, please email the following staff: Mrs. Marable, Nurse Frost, and your child's teacher. We will respond with the next steps.

Anytime a student is placed on quarantine by the school, your child's teacher will contact you to let you know what materials are needed to pick-up and distance learning information. If you need a device, please always let us know.

If the school has to go to distance learning, we will always send information about how to pick up materials and lunch. Teachers will send out distance learning schedules. If you need more assistance during these times, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Upon returning to in-person learning, please return all devices and materials to the school.
