Lunch, Snacks, & Pizza Fridays
Children should bring a dairy based lunch (no meat) with them every day. We will refrigerate lunches if needed. Do not send items that need to be heated. A snack will be provided. Breakfast is served during extended care hours until 8 a.m. On Pizza Fridays children have the option of purchasing a cheese pizza lunch for $4. Please pre-register if you choose to participate. Lunch includes two slices of pizza, applesauce, cookies and beverage.


What to Bring
Bring a lunch, tennis shoes, socks, and swimsuit. We provide towels. There is no need to send extra money for activities. Children should wear comfortable clothes that they can move in and that are also suitable for art projects. We ask that kids leave their electronics and money at home. Children are solely responsible for all items they bring with them.
