Upcoming Change in Morning Routine

Beginning January 3, 2018 we will have a change in how we manage students in the morning before school begins during breakfast time. Any student entering the building before 7:45am will report directly to the gymnasium. We will now have both sides of the upper deck open in the gymnasium. Students wishing to eat the “Grab and Go” breakfast or students who bring their own breakfast will eat in the gym and remain there until the bell rings to dismiss to 1st period class. The cafeteria will not be open for any students until 7:45am, at which point we will announce for students wishing to eat the hot breakfast to go to the cafeteria. These changes will help us manage the cafeteria space more efficiently to ensure students who want to eat the hot breakfast will have adequate space to eat.
