Please note that inclement weather, school closings, and seasonal availability cause Food & Nutrition Services to change food items from the original menu. Parents cannot be notified in advance of the change due to uncertainty of the number of days closed, possible equipment failure and product delivery disruptions. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
