Each week, shelf-stable, kid-friendly, and healthy foods are sent home. Most of the foods are easily prepared and can be consumed when parents are working and unable to prepare meals for their children. Please contact our nurse, Jenna Wear, if your family is interested in participating.

State-sponsored post-season athletic events (i.e. playoff/tournament games) always require payment for admittance for ALL students.
