On Parent/Teacher conference days, large scale activities are planned, and children bring a "nut free" bag lunch. On these "special" days, we may invite special guests to the sites. Additional details will be made available upon receipt from the District.

Enrollment available via your EZChildTrack account and will be invoiced accordingly. Parents, this is considered an "a la carte" program and therefore, express written consent via your online account must occur by the registration deadline.
