For the past two years, the United States Department of Agriculture has offered waivers to school districts allowing them to offer students breakfast and lunch at no charge. Those waivers are now expired. This means that starting in August of 2022-2023, we will return to normal pre-pandemic operations. Families will once again be required to complete a new free/reduced meals application to see if their student qualifies for free/reduced meals based on income. View more info.

As safety and security is always our first priority, we ask for your assistance to ensure that items that are weapons, could be considered weapons, or are toy replicas of weapons do not make their way onto our school campuses. Examples of these items include, but are not limited to: Airsoft/BB/pellet/cap guns, pocket/Swiss Army knives, bows and arrows, etc.Recently, water/gel bead guns have gained popularity. These are NOT permitted on our campuses.
Please check your child’s backpack, pockets and jackets for these items, and talk with your child about why they cannot bring these items to school. If a student is found to be in possession of a weapon, whether real or toy, they will face disciplinary action, including possible criminal charges and recommendations for expulsion.
