    • Did you know?
      • Every morning and every afternoon one of the regular buses serves as a “shuttle” to get students from one campus to the other.  The morning shuttles leave promptly from each campus at 7:15am. The afternoon shuttles leave promptly from each campus at 2:45pm. Click here for more information

Ο  School Meals: the Cafeteria is Open for Breakfast and Lunch!
