  • Student Meal Charges
    Parents, please be aware that as of April 18th meal charges are not allowed for student lunches. We are sorry for the inconvenience; however, the School Nutrition department needs ample time to recuperate money owed and to clear the negative balances. A parent letter was sent home on April 4th to notify of this change. Also, please note that it may take up to 24 hours for funds to be posted through My School Bucks. Payments posted will typically be available the next day so please plan ahead.
