Dear Parents and Guardians,
We ask you to complete this year’s meal application. A meal application needs to be completed for all families, whether or not your children eat school meals. New York State uses the information on these forms in determining our schools funding.

We would appreciate it if you filled out the application online at www.applyforlunch.com

Online applications are processed within 24 hours. If you are unable to complete the application online, we will need for you to complete the forms that we sent home with your children. However, the online applications are preferred.

 We thank you in advance for completing your family’s meal application and we look forward to another successful school year.

From the Principal

Dear Parents,
As the school year comes to an end, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your support and hard work throughout this school year. This has truly been a year of learning and growing. You were involved in so many things beyond the scope of your responsibility. We truly appreciate your enthusiasm and the time that you devoted to our children. We could not have done it without you.
Looking forward to September, wed like to remind you that we are a uniform school. Uniforms are to be worn every Monday-Thursday. The School Leadership Team has decided to amend our Uniform Policy for next year to reflect that our uniform will consist of a solid navy shirt and beige/khaki bottoms. We will also be allowing students to wear navy sweat pants on gym days only (we will be providing one pair per child in September!). School begins at 8:00 daily. Any student that arrives after 8:00 will be considered late. We will begin breakfast at 7:40 each morning so that your children have the time to eat if they have school breakfast. Line up for children who arent having school breakfast and for Pre-K students will begin at 7:50.
All of our school families will need to complete School Meal Applications. On or around July 1st, we will e-mail a link so that you may do so before school opens. Wed very much appreciate it if you can take a few minutes to complete the questionnaire, it will be one less thing to do when school reopens.
Congratulations to our Pre-K and Kindergarten students who will be participating in their promotional ceremonies next week. Congratulations to our Senior Graduating Class of 2015! Best wishes to you all and good luck in your future endeavors, we will miss you! We look forward to working with you as we continue to move toward a thriving educational environment for our students, staff, parents and community. Have a safe and restful summer. See you on September 9th!

Sincerely,



Jane McCord Annette Moncada JoAnne Cancel
