School Lunch Protocol
Greetings students and parents,
 
Students are not allowed to order food from any food delivery service or restaurant and have it delivered to the school. If a student is caught retrieving food from a food delivery service or restaurant, the food will be confiscated, and the student can pick it up after school. Also, students are not allowed to leave the school during lunch.  Parents, if you are dropping off food for your student, bring it into the building and leave it at the security desk. Please do not have your student meet you outside or pull up to the picnic area and drop off food. Safety of all our students, faculty, staff, and visitors is a top priority, and we appreciate your support in maintaining a safe school environment.

Thank you,

Priscilla Cole
Principal
