    • Bring a sack lunch or pay for your lunch as you go through the lunch line using your child’s nutrition account or in cash with exact change or small bills.
    • Please call the school office by 9:15 a.m. of the morning you will be joining us.
    • We may limit the number of families who may eat lunch on a particular day based on space and/or meal availability.

    For a special occasion, such as a child’s birthday, we invite you to bring lunch from a restaurant for you and/or your child. However, we will find a quiet area in the building or on school grounds separate from the lunchroom for you to eat. Families are welcome to take their child out for lunch during their specific lunch/recess time.
