WE ARE ALSO ANNOUNCING A LUNCH CHANGE FOR MONDAY MAY 16, 2022. THIS WILL AFFECT ALL THREE BUILDINGS. WE WILL NOT BE SERVING PB&J UNCRUSTABLES POSSIBLY THROUGH THE REST OF MAY AND MAYBE JUNE DUE TO A SUPPLY SHORTAGE. WE HAVE A SHORT SUPPLY LEFT THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO USE FOR OUR FIELD TRIPS AND SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES.
EACH BUILDING MAY HAVE EXTRA CHOICES THAT THEY WILL SERVE AT LUNCH TIME AND THE STUDENTS WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO DECIDE WHAT CHOICE THEY PREFER ON THESE DAYS. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND
UNDERSTANDING OF THESE SUPPLY CHALLENGES. NO CHANGES TO SPECIAL DIETARY MENUS.
Please be advised that the food chain supply is in high demand and we are experiencing shortages and out of stocks, so we may need to be flexible on lunch and breakfast choices. Please let your students know to pay attention to announcements and/or emails that may talk about an item change on any given day. Special Dietary menus already in place will be notified personally if we need to make a change to special menus.
