SCHOOL WEATHER ADVISORIES & POSSIBLE CLOSINGS / DELAYS
Please be advised that sometimes information gets posted late, or district robocalls do not get through, therefore we recommend calling the school office to make sure. As Parent Council we will do our very best to get the information to you asap.
 

SCHOOL LUNCHES:

 
Our school has been approved for the district Satellite Lunch Program where, instead of receiving “Pre-Plate” (frozen and reheated) lunches, our students receive freshly prepared food, cooked on site at a neighboring school that has a fully operational kitchen.
