Please keep watch of your students lunch account for any negative balances.  If the balance falls below $10.00, you'll be receiving an email telling you about the balance of the family lunch account.  If your student is negative, they'll be receiving a cheese sandwich, fruit and milk and not allowed to purchase any Ala carte items in the cafeteria.   If you have any questions, please call the HS office and talk to Mrs. Hardesty @ 928-2622. 


If you need your student from class during the day for an appointment, please call the office before coming to the school. This way, we can ensure you can get them in a timely manner with very little disruption for the classroom.  Also, if you call ahead, the student can meet you outside in the circle drive and you will not have to come in and sign the student out.  Please call the HS @ 928-2622 and the secretaries will be more than happy to assist!  Thank you!
