Apply for Lunch Assistance

School breakfast is free, but lunch is not. Without meal assistance, a school lunch costs $2.85 each day, for each child. For some families, this can create a significant financial challenge. Everyone is encouraged to apply for meal assistance through the district website. (Look under "Parents/Students," then "school meals" under "Resources for Students." Apply for meal assistance by clicking the link under "Apply Online for Free and Reduced Meals" and filling in the required information.) For convenience's sake, you may also access the form by clicking the MySchoolApps link below.

Meal assistance applications must be renewed each school year. The previous year's plan will cover the first couple weeks of school, but to continue to receive assistance, each family MUST reapply at the beginning of the year, or the child will be required to begin paying full price for his/her meal.

If you have questions or need help, please contact the school during regular business hours.

Important Arrival / Dismissal Procedures

The safety of our school community is our number one priority every day. At the same time, we understand everyone's time is valuable, so we also need to be efficient with the time we have. In order to maintain a safe and efficient environment with so many students, it is important for everyone to follow some basic procedures:

  • Doors open at 7:30 each morning. This is the earliest students may be dropped off for school. There is no supervision for students prior to that time, so please do not drop students off earlier than 7:30.
  • Students who dismiss as walkers must walk home. They may not be picked up by someone driving to the walker area in a car, even when the weather is bad. All students leaving school in a car must dismiss through the car-rider line, and cars may not park along the road to pick up a walker.
  • Cars may only make a right turn into the car-rider line. This means cars will have to drive West down Foster Dr. in order to turn right into the line. (Left turns will not be allowed.) Cars may join the car-rider line on Foster from Porter Road or from Cedar Crossing. Please do not make U-turns on Foster Drive, as it creates a safety hazard for drivers.
  • To make a dismissal change, parents may email the school at and include a picture of their driver's license. All dismissal change requests must be received BEFORE 2:45 so we have time to communicate the change to the dismissal duty staff.
