Student Badges on Backpacks
Please help your child keep his/her school issued student badge attached to the backpack, and that the backpack comes to school every day. Badges are used during breakfast for meals. They also help with campus safety.
Beginning October 24th, students who do not have their badge with them at breakfast will need to get a badge from our grade level box of Borrowed Badge Cards. This will delay students as they go through the breakfast line. Please help you child have their badge each day.
