REMINDERS: ãFor the protection of the students, please remember thatstudents are not to be on the Garden Gate campus before7:45 a.m. There is no adult supervision until 7:45 a.m.ãPlease do not congregate outside of the classrooms whileschool is still in session. This is very disruptive to both theteacher and the students and could be a distraction fromvaluable learning time.ãEvery Tuesday is early dismissal day. Please remember that all a.m. Kindergarten students are dismissed at 11:10a.m. and all p.m. Kindergarten students along withlstudents in grades 1-5 are dismissed at 1:30. Pleaseremember to pick up your children promptly. HOT LUNCH Student Nutrition Services use a computerized systemto serve hot lunch to the students. In order for thesystem to run smoothly and effectively, it isrecommended that parents/guardians send pre-payment envelopes to the school office no later than9:00 a.m. on the day the child wants toreceive a school lunch. Paying cash at the lunch line isdiscouraged because it creates a delay and causesstudents to wait longer for their hot lunch. We aretrying to make our lunch lines cashless, and so werecommend that parents pay via check instead of cash.Parents can also pay online <>by using their debit or credit cards. Please pre-pay for as many lunches in advance as possible. Parents/guardians may pre-pay for lunches for one or moredays on a weekly basis or, if desired, for a month or more.
