Developing proper nutritional habits in this day and age is not an easy task, but not developing those habits has overwhelming consequences. Our school is very concerned about this aspect of our student’s lives. We know that it has an effect on their total well-being and may have an impact on their academic performance as well.

Important: If you will be arriving late please call your child's lunch in no later than 10 am so that we may have your child's lunch prepared on time.

Teachers order lunches for their students in their class. However, if a student arrives after classes have started, the student should order their lunch in the office before going to class. 

Free and Reduced Lunches

Applications for free lunch and reduced lunch prices are available through the school office or can be downloaded by clicking here.
