Field Trip Reminder

 

REMINDER

We are attending Special Ed Field Day at Edsel Ford High School tomorrow.

A picnic/ bbq type meal will be provided for all students.  This meal will include hot dogs, chips, and a drink.  If your child does not like hot dogs you many want to pack them a bag lunch with all disposable items.

Please be sure to dress your child appropriately for the weather.  We will be outside the entire time so hats, coats, or sunscreen may be a good idea depending on the weather.

 

Summer Meals

If you have a school-aged student in need of breakfast and lunch this summer, simply text “FOOD” to 877877 and receive a message back with a location closest to where they can get free summer meals.
