FOOD Services

Your child's health is very important to us. We believe that healthy, delicious meals that help meet the nutritional needs of developing minds and bodies improve a student's classroom performance. We are dedicated to providing nutritious meals in our cafeteria.

  • Put trash and uneaten food in proper containers.
