Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What should I do if my child forgets something and I need to bring it to school? 
    Parents may drop off items in the school office, but we cannot allow a disruption at the classroom.  Lunches will be taken to the cafeteria, and other items will be put in teachers' mailboxes.  We cannot guarantee that items will be retrieved before the end of the day.

  2. What happens if my child's lunch account reaches $0 and I forgot to add funds to the account?
    Students will be allowed to "charge" lunch to the account and a note will be sent home to remind parents to replenish the account.

  3. How can I change my child's afternoon transportation if an emergency comes up during the day?
    Call the school office (980-343-5700). The staff member who answers will ask you to send an email so that we have written documentation of the change. Your child's teacher will be informed of the change prior to 2:40 pm.
