Food Deliveries for Students:

The office will no longer accept food deliveries for students or drop offs from parents. It has become a significant distraction to the educational environment.

We would invite parents to join their child for lunch if they would like to. If a parent would like to join their student for lunch, they can call the office the day before to make an appointment that matches up with the student’s lunch time. The parent and student can have lunch at the tables outside of the counseling office.
