    Thank you!

     Each student will receive an ID number on the first day of school. This ID number is used for buying lunch in the cafeteria. The number links to their account, which you can add money to at any time.  I will provide lunch cards with ID numbers for the children to use until they have their numbers memorized. If you choose to send lunch money in with your child instead, please have it clearly labeled with your child's name. You will be notified when the balance is getting low. 


    Friendly Reminder

    Please write your child's name on the envelope when sending in lunch money.

    Thank you!
