Pack Reusable Cutlery For Your Child(ren)

In an effort to be more environmentally conscious, we are asking parents, students, and staff to please ensure that reusable cutlery is being brought from home for use at lunch.

We have seen a huge increase in the number of students that are asking for plastic utensils from the main office at lunch. It is important to understand the impact this has on our environment.

Thank you for your cooperation!
