Special announcement from Cafeteria:
With less than 25 school days left in this school year, ordering the items you enjoy gets a little more difficult.  We apologize in advance for fewer choices or if we run out of your favorite item.  It’s an unfortunate part of this time of year. 
We wish you all a safe & happy summer and look forward to serving you next school year.  If you’re a senior, congratulations!!  Best wishes for a bright & wonderful future!
Your Cafeteria Staff,
Renee, Melissa, Stephanie & Kristine
