Reminder:  Log into the parent portal to update your information so we have the most current and correct info.  

 
Changes coming to Box Tops for Education:  Over the summer, you'll begin to see some participating brands change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label. Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. There will be a new app available this summer. The new app will feature state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school's earnings online. As we mentioned above, some brands have already started to update their packaging in advance. Until the new app launches, if you see the new Box Tops label on packages, you can use the current Box Tops Bonus App to earn Box Tops for that product. Simply download the app, select the bonus app for the product you've purchased and scan your receipt to earn. If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, be sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, once the new app launches, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping the traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing participating products. Thanks for helping our school get extra dollars!

 

 


Each Sunday night @ 7:00 PM, Low Lunch Balance Reminder messages through Campus will be sent out to all who have lunch/milk break charges.   Parents:  You should choose your delivery preference in your Portal - the Emergency messages will be school closing (weather related); lunch reminders are General Messages.  Call Pat or Dani if you need help or have questions.

With this data, the District will contact parents with information concerning this event. You may call Pat at 859-2001 in the elementary office Monday through Thursday.
