Notes from the Nurse

Please consider donating used tennis shoes, athletic pants, leggings, jackets or coats to the clinic for use when children need to change clothes at school. The clinic is especially in need of athletic pants for boys and girls.

If your child has recently borrowed clothing from the clinic, please launder it and return it to school. Thank you!

Cafe Update

In response to continuous supply chain issues and also in order to reduce waste, we will be adapting the daily lunch menu as we approach the end of the year. These changes will be posted on the New Britton Elementary Parents and Teachers Facebook page weekly. Some days there could be multiple hot lunch choices, which will be similar to each other. We ask if you child chooses the hot option, that they are open to receiving either one. We will continue to offer the cold options (turkey cheese roll up, PBJ, protein and salad) daily. We will be very transparent with all menu items and please feel free to reach out to smckernon@hse.k12.in.us) with any questions.

Thank you for your continued support and patience.
