Students are NOT allowed to play major athletic games like football or kickball.

When the first bell rings, students are welcome to go in the First Come First Serve Line. Once the second bell rings, we will stop students from entering the line, and will start calling students to eat by grade level. We want students to hold each other accountable, so please pick up after yourselves and remind your peers to do the same. Make sure to check the lunch line order, which will be posted on the left hand side of B110 (the entrance for the lunch line). This order is not set in stone and will change. Please remember that no food from off-campus sources may be delivered to school unless approved by school administration.
