New Cafeteria Procedures for Putting Money on Accounts
This is a message from our Cafeteria Manager, Darlene Foster, concerning what to do when your child is bringing in money to apply to their account.

All prepaid money for breakfast and/or lunch needs to be in an envelope or ziplock bag with the students name or lunch number on it. There will be a locked drop box outside the kitchen that the money can be dropped in by the student or by the parents.

Thank you for your cooperation.
