  • Parents, per the handbook, microwave use is limited to reheating items for a minute or less. It is not for cooking items or frozen items that require over a minute to heat up. Students also need to be able to independently use the microwave and clean up any messes that are made in the microwave.

  • Also, please send any utensils (spoons or forks) your child needs for their lunch. Utensils are only provided by the caterers when their menu calls for it and for the students that order. 

Thank you for your assistance with these lunchroom procedures.

If you receive a call from the school and don’t answer at the time of the call PLEASE check for a voice mail before you call the school back.  We want to make sure you get to speak to the correct person but if you don’t know who called you then it makes it difficult for us to assist you.
