Food and Drinks

It has always been a school policy that no food or drinks should be brought in to the auditorium or classrooms in the mornings. Please finish all food items and drinks before you leave the lobby area if you are coming in from car riders. Cafeteria foods should not be brought out of the cafeteria. This helps us to keep our building clean and not have to worry about pests in the classrooms. Water in bottles with screw on lids is permissible.

Delay Schedules

As winter weather is out there somewhere, be reminded that a 1-hour delay means the school doors will open at 8:30.  For a 2-hour delay, the school will open at 9:30. Breakfast will not be served for a 2-hour delay.

Please continue to save BOX TOPS on items that you are purchasing or using.
