Free & Reduced Lunch and Fee Waivers

We encourage all families to complete the Free & Reduced Lunch Forms to see if they qualify.  You can now complete them ONLINE or on paper.  If you need a paper form for Free & Reduced Lunch or a Fee Waiver form, you can pick them up in the office.

Chromebook Pick-up

Most of our students have picked up their Chromebooks for the year.  If your child has not picked up their Chromebook and you need the parent training, please call the school for an appointment.  If the $25 insurance fee is a significant hardship, contact Mrs. Cheek for information about a payment plan.

School Fees

We will begin collecting school fees in the office on Tuesday, September 11.  Students will receive slips with information about fees owed in homeroom on Friday.  If paying by check, be sure to include a phone number on the check.
