Junior High Parents and Students, Beginning November 30th, the Monday after Thanksgiving Break, the Breakfast in the Classroom Program procedures will be changing. Free breakfast will still be offered daily to all Junior High students, but it will be a "grab and go" style. Instead of getting the breakfast in their 1st period classroom, students will have two "grab and go" stations in the IMC area of the Junior High portion of the school. Students can simply pick up a free breakfast and then take it to their 1st Period class to eat. If you were not aware, any student can pick up a free breakfast, daily. Thank you
