Please remember each student needs a water bottle every day. To reduce the spread of germs, we currently only have bottle fillers available. Without a water bottle, your child is limited to mealtime drinks. Thank you for your help!

Thank you to all the families who have already completed this year's free and reduced meal application. It is not too late to submit an application, but the deadline is quickly approaching (October 5). The National School Lunch Program waiver that provided free meals to all students due to the COVID-19 pandemic expired this summer. This means school meals will no longer automatically be free for everyone. Free and reduced meal applications affect funding in many areas, so all families are encouraged to complete the new application to ensure continued funding to support all students in our district. Qualifying for the meal benefit plan allows for four free ACT tests, waiver for college admission fees, and waiver for the NCAA Clearinghouse. Only one application per family needs to be submitted.

There is a free online search locator for helping families to find a respite worker on the website listed below.

We would like to clarify. The intention and interpretation of the previous post concerning games may have caused some concern for some parents and fans. It was solely intended for the safety of our students and fans. We want you and your family to come and enjoy the games. Please recognize we have limited space for children to play and socialize at games. We respectfully ask your support in keeping everyone safe, especially students playing on the hillside behind the bleachers. Thank you.
