We have door-to-door pick-up that is super beneficial for traffic and all of our parents. Come in and ask us how you can get on our route.

Play it Safe this Summer

Summertime is here! This means days of play, entertainment and good BBQ.

All things fun put aside, remember there are obstacles that come with summer that can be avoided. Here are some tips to make your break away from school carefree and joyous.

Lunch Applications are Available

Reduced-cost lunch program applications are now available in the school office. Anyone can apply to be considered for the reduced-cost lunch program.

The front office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feel free to stop by and fill out an application for the reduced lunch program.

As a friendly reminder to parents, please be aware that lunch or lunch money will need to be provided until the application is approved. If you applied last year, a new application needs to be filled out this year.
