    General Announcements

    • For breakfast, kids who come in at 7:35 or later are sent to class with their trays to finish in the classroom. Anyone who comes in before that eats in the cafeteria and leaves at 7:40 to go to class. Those kids are not allowed to leave with breakfast items. Breakfast opens at 7:00. If your student plans on eating breakfast at school, please allow them enough time to get their breakfast and eat it in order to be in class on time at 7:40 ready to learn.
