Emergency Alert System

School Delays and Closings
When weather conditions warrant a two hour delay or for school to close a phone call is made to the primary contact phone number for each student.  If you change phone numbers, please send a note to the school secretary so that the records can be updated and your new number can be added to the calling system.

When there is a two hour delay, breakfast is NOT served.  Please be sure that your student(s) have breakfast before coming to school.  Bus routes will run two hours later than the normal schedule.  The first bell for elementary students will be 10:50 so students that walk or come by private transportation should plan to arrive at 10:45.  The first bell for high school students is 9:38 so students should not arrive before 9:30.

What is a School Lunch?

  • School meals must be high in nutrients and adequate in calories, consistent with the latest nutrition science.
  • School meals are "right-sized" and reflect the appropriate balance between food groups.
  • School meal standards are in line with dietary recommendations for protein intake.
  • School meal standards allow students to select at least three of the five food components on their plate. Students MUST take at least three items to qualify as a school lunch.  One of the three items must be a fruit or vegetable. The school cannot provide free milk to students who pack their lunch as this is a violation of the standards.
