What will my child need for daily rest time?

Can student's buy a lunch from the cafeteria?
Yes, but we request that you that children bring a lunch from home for the first few weeks of school in order to ease the transition. After students feel more comfortable and routines are established, then they may be ready to buy lunch from the cafeteria.Back to Top
How do I pay for my child's lunch?
It is recommended that you purchase your child a lunch ticket ahead of time. Lunch tickets may be purchased for a week or month with a check or cash. This money will be placed in an account to be used as needed. Please send all money in a sealed envelope with your child's name and teacher's name to the cafeteria in the morning before school starts.Back to Top
Will my child have Show and Tell?

Can I have lunch with my child?
Yes, it is best to wait for a few weeks. In the beginning we like students to get used to the routine. We often find that seeing their parents in the middle of the day causes a tearful separation after lunch that is hard on both parent and child.Back to Top
