Student Grievances Policy

Lunch Schedule
Lunch Time Students provide their own lunch and may eat in the classroom or outside. Periodically, pizza and other food items are sold for class and school fund-raising activities. 

Car Pools 
One of the key ways our school allocates funds for academics is by relying on parents to supply transportation for their children to and from school. MaP aids parents with carpool information to assist in their planning for transportation.
