Field Day Lunch

Field Day this year is Friday, May 17th. In the past, the RHHSA has provided a picnic lunch through Chartwells. This year we have decided to change things up a bit and offer a pizza picnic lunch instead. Each child will be given two slices of pizza (Meglio's), chips, fruit, and water or juice. Students may also bring a packed lunch. They will still bring their beach towels and enjoy their lunch outside. We need a firm count on how many students would like pizza.

Please complete form at the link below for each child in your family by May 3rd.
