Healthy Choices

Join Your Child for Lunch 

Parents are welcome to join their child for lunch from time to time. No advanced notice is needed; just check in at the office and meet your child’s class in the lobby.

Birthday Treats

If you plan to send birthday treats to school, please inform your child’s teacher at least by the day prior. Birthday treats should be left in the office where your child’s teacher will pick them up for distribution. Due to student allergies, birthday treats must be distributed by the teacher.

Party invitations may not be distributed at school.
