Please remember to have your child dressed warm! If you need help with snow clothes, please let us know.

ADVENTURE LUNCH PROCEDURE
This year our kitchen will be providing lunches for field trips. The cost will be the same as what your child currently pays for a hot lunch (regular price, reduced price, or free.) The lunch will usually consist of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, Cheetos, raisins or an apple, carrots, and milk - the milk will be kept in a cooler. If your child has a peanut allergy, please inform the office and we will provide a different type of sandwich. Students are still welcome to bring their own lunch or extra snacks and/or a water bottle if they wish. If you would like your child to have the school sack lunch, please ask your child to inform his/her teacher on Tuesday morning, so that the kitchen will know how many lunches to prepare on Wednesday morning.
