Lunch Menu Updated for October.

Parents/guardians are encouraged to make meal payments in advance. Personal checks and cash deposits are accepted at the student’s home school but are discouraged at this time to limit that hand to hand transfer of money. For convenience, deposits may also be made by credit/debit card after setting up an account for the student on My Payments Plus.


Parent Covid Screener:

Please utilize the attached checklist before sending your child(ren) to school.  


Title Parent Compact:

Last week we shared some information about our school’s targeted Title services. We included a parent compact that is designed to outline the partnership schools and families have for helping our students achieve. We are requesting all families complete the compact survey. Please take a moment to become familiar with what Title 1 is and how it can help our students.

Parent Connect -- Action Required:

We are replacing paper copies of Emergency Cards this year. We are asking that all parents/guardians log in to their Parent Connect account to update and confirm the information. A new tab titled, ‘Back to School Updates’ on Parent Connect has been activated and will now allow parents to directly edit items such as emergency contact information and student health information.  Other requirements include confirmations of items such as internet usage rules, medical authorization, and a student handbook review.

We use this information to contact you when your child is not feeling well,  if there is an emergency, or to communicate important events and information. Please note you need to review the information even if your information is unchanged. 

Instructions provided here Parent Connect Contact Information-ReEnrollment 

Please take a few moments this weekend, to complete the required updates by Sunday, October 4, 2020.  Thank you for your cooperation!
