Student Meals - M-W-F Pick-up

While we conduct virtual learning, students can still pick up lunches to go from the cafeteria at the back of the school (enter through Villarreal street - left side of the school if you are facing front entrance) on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Pick-up will be curbside so all students and passengers must remain in their vehicle. Lunch pick-up times are from 10:00am-1:00pm during virtual instruction. Updated information will be distributed as things change throughout the year.

If the student is not present, the parent/guardian will just need to provide the student ID number (click to view flyer below for details).
