Breakfast Process Change

Beginning Monday, March 27th students will be eating breakfast in the cafeteria instead of in the classroom. This change is being made to help reduce the mess that is created in the classroom from breakfast, help expedite the school day, and we no longer are expected to keep stable seating charts. Students arriving after 8:50 will still grab a bagged breakfast and eat his or her breakfast in the classroom.
