After receiving feedback from our parent committees, students, and staff we have decided to change our lunch drop off policy. We appreciate your input and thank you in advance for your support of this new policy.

  • Students may pick up lunches from their parents in the football stadium parking lot located off of Olympic Parkway. Lunches MAY NOT be dropped off in the main office nor may lunches be handed off to students in the main office parking lot or the gym parking lot.
  • Parents must exit their vehicles and hand off the lunch to their child. In the interests of student safety, students will not be permitted to enter the parking lot to retrieve lunches from parked cars. Food delivery services such as Uber Eats are not permitted.
