Daily lunch options include a sandwich or hot lunch, drink, and two sides. Questions about the lunch program can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Students in the Little Woodland class bring their own lunches and do not purchase a lunch at school.
Each class will hold a parent meeting at the start of the year. More information can be found online on the school calendar.
