SCHOOL LUNCHES


All lunches are $4.75 and includes an entre, side, fresh fruit and milk/water bottle. Copies of your menu choices come home in Family Folders before the month begins. Our vendors are Dash of Salt & Pepper, Oronzo Honest Italian and Precinct Pizza.


If your child forgets their lunch, they will be provided with an emergency lunch. This may include a hot lunch or a grape uncrustable with chips and a milk/water. Your Tuition Express account will be charged the $4.25 for lunch.


Lunches are not billed until the end of the month so students can add or take away lunch menu items. Little taste buds sometimes think they will like something and then don't. If that is the case, email Ms. Patti at Pharmon@familyofchristtampa.com or call her at 813-558-9343 Ext. 118 and she will change your child's order for future weeks.

MEDICATION FORM

EARLY SIGN OUT


Please refrain from signing out your children after 2 pm unless you have an appointment. The end of the day is as important as the beginning of the day, so children should stay in class. Parents should notify teachers and office staff of dates and times of early dismissal.

911 20 years.jpg

All FOC Kids and Families are cordially invited to attend a special outdoor event at Mission BBQ on Bruce B. Downs/Fletcher on Saturday, September 11th. On this day, our world changed forever. It is a day that Americans will never forget as our Nation’s Heroes ran in, so that others could run out during this attack on American soil.

We are hosting this 20-Year commemorative ceremony in our parking lot just before 12:00 Noon to honor those Fire, Police and First Responders lost on that fateful day, while also showing our resilience as a Nation, and thanking our local Community heroes here in Tampa.

Beginning at 11:00 AM, everyone will have the opportunity to experience presentations/exhibitions by local First Responders including a Helicopter Landing, Bomb Squad demonstration, Temple Terrace Police exhibit, Temple Terrace Fire team, multiple Tampa Police exhibits with their dogs and horses, Tampa Fire Rescue, USF Police and their K-9’s, Crisis Center EMS, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, VA Police, PBA, among others.

The National Anthem will be professionally sung at Noon, and the St. Andrews Bag Pipe Troupe will also be present to provide musical entertainment.

We look forward to seeing you there to honor this important day in American History.

Additional questions can be directed to Kris Smith at PH: 813-909-3064.
