Here's the new online evaluation to help collect feedback about how things are going out at patrol. Parents and students can also go online and fill this out. If you are a witness to something wonderful or something concerning out at the drop-off zone, send me some information through this survey! People who are not official patrollers can skip some of the questions that don't apply to them.
Thanks everyone!

If any adults want to purchase hot lunch, the cost is $4.00 per meal.  Adult lunches cannot be charged to a student’s card.  If you (adult) would like to set up an account, you may do so by bringing cash or a check to Teresa.  If you want to just “pay as you go,” you can do that as well, but you must have exact change.

You can pay online for your child’s lunches with your credit card! You can also check your child’s balance any time. You can access the system by going to www.myschoolbucks.com. You will need to create an account in order to use this service.  Also you will need your student’s ID number. Of course you can always come in to the office and put money in your child’s account by writing a check or using cash.
