Elementary Menus for January
We hope you had a wonderful break. We are looking forward to our students and staff returning tomorrow, January 5, 2021. The mask mandate is still in effect so please make sure your child has one for school. If you child needs a mask, we will have some available in the office.

We are looking forward to the second half of the school year and a successful 2021! See you tomorrow!
