Students are welcome and encouraged to take advantage of the meals available at school. Students are also welcome to bring a sack lunch. We ask that no sodas are sent in these lunches.

When ten breakfast/lunch charges are accrued, your child will be given a sandwich, fruit and milk versus the regular school lunch until charges are caught up.
Parent Involvement (Policy 1405)
The Board of Education recognizes the positive effects of parents/families’ involvement in the education of their children. The Board is committed to strong parent/family involvement in working collaboratively with district staff as knowledgeable partners in educating district students. In order to implement the Board’s commitment to parent/family involvement in education, the existing Title I advisory committee will serve as the nucleus of parents, staff, and community representatives to serve as the district’s Parent Involvement Committee. The Committee’s responsibilities will include recommendations for program development, parent/staff training and program evaluation. Program evaluation reports will be prepared and submitted to the Superintendent annually by June 1.
Children’s achievement and attitude about school are higher when parents and teachers work together cooperatively to guide a child’s development. Parents and teachers should expect children to learn, behave well, and respect the rights of other children in order to learn without distraction. As a result, children will understand that the adults in their lives help set standards for learning and behavior.
What role do you have in establishing this environment?
1. Insure that your child attends school daily.
2. Communicate with the teacher about conduct, achievement, and the objectives
established for your child at each level of learning.
3. Provide your child with the resources needed to complete class work.
4. Be sure your child is healthy and well groomed and has plenty of rest.
5. Bring to the attention of the teacher or principal any problem or condition, which
affects your child or other children of the school community.
6. Discuss report cards and daily work assignments with your child.
7. Report to school up-to-date home, work, and emergency telephone numbers.
8. Provide adequate supervision of your child before and after school hours.
