January HotLunches!

The menu for January HotLunches will be going up this Sunday night and will be open until December 23th.  This will allow parents to get orders in before the holiday break as it may be something that misses your attention with Christmas activities!  January is a long month of lunches with 22 school days so parents will want to get orders in.

There are a number of outstanding accounts that have not yet been paid for December. Parents need to make payment on or before Friday, December 14th or you will be unable to order for January.  It is our expectation that parents pay for the lunches they order each month soon after ordering (with the first week of the schedule) as we do have to pay vendors for the food that is ordered. Please give this your immediate attention.

As well, refunds were made to all accounts for food and milk orders for November 29th and November 30th as those were storm days.  You will see those credits in your accounts.

We will have a change in price for chocolate milk in January (now .90 cents) and more food choices from Farmed Market and Butchery.

Occupational Therapy Services at Greenfield

Parents and guardians will be receiving a letter regarding Occupational Therapy Services.  We will now have Anne-Marie Peters, an Occupational Therapist, at Greenfield Elementary every Day 2.  She will be part of our school team and will be accessible to school staff as well as to parents.  She will spend time in many areas of the school to observe students and provide support for their motor and sensory skills.

This is good news as she becomes part of the supports we have available for our students on a regular basis.

Here is a copy of the letter that parents will receive regarding Occupational Therapy.
