Menu changes possible due to unexptected school closings

When we unexpectedly close the school for a day, the lunch menu of the cafeteria will often change for the remainder of that week, because we prepare daily fresh lunches.

Lunch Tickets & Lunch Passes

Lunch passes are purchased during the admissions process using the lunch pass form on the forms page. Students will receive their lunch pass on the first day of classes. The lunch program will begin on the first day of classes. In lieu of participation in the annual lunch program, individual lunch tickets can be purchased for $4.75 at the reception.
