  • Support our School Funding - EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

    Parents you do not need to apply for your child to receive meals. However, we do ask families to complete Family Income Inquiry Form, which helps schools receive money for their programs. The forms will be backpacked home with the students, but if you do not receive the form from your child, you can complete the form online. Please click the link below and complete the form. Please help us secure our funding for what our school and our students needs. School Lunch Form Thank you
