Valentine’s Day Candy Grams

Let a special student, friend, faculty member, or family member know you care. Lollipop bouquets are available for one cluster of two for $2 or three clusters of two for $5. There is also a raffle for bouquets. Three tickets are $2, and there are five bouquets available in the raffle.

Cash only, please, and orders are due by February 3, 2021. We are following all health guidelines so this is a safe activity. We will deliver the lollipops in school on February 12, 2021. You can pick up lollipops for any distance learners that day between 3:00 p.m.and 5:00 p.m. Proceeds benefit the eighth grade graduation sendoff. 

Lunch and Beverage Reminders

We would like to remind you of some of the protocols that have been put in place due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and how they affect your children as far as their lunches and beverages here in the school building are concerned.

Water fountains have signs over them as a reminder that they are not to be used. Please remember to supply your students with beverages to drink. 

Lunch orders:
You must place lunch orders for students via the online portal before 9:00 p.m. the day before the lunch is needed. Since we often have changes in regard to students switching to remote learning due to exposure, please remember to make any adjustments on the lunch portal (i.e. remove your student's lunch order from the portal if they will not be in school so that you will not be charged). If you do not sign up and your child needs a hot lunch, you will receive a phone call asking you to bring in your student's lunch.

Lunches and snacks from home:
If you are providing snacks and lunch from home, please be sure you also provide utensils, napkins, and again, beverages. 

Please feel free to contact our hot lunch program coordinator, Erin Carmody, directly via email should you have any other questions or concerns. Let's continue to be safe and healthy.
