If children are well enough to be in school, they are typically well enough to go outdoors and enjoy recess.

If you have extenuating circumstances that need to be considered, please call our office.
What is Scrip?
"Scrip" is the purchasing of giftcards to stores and restaurants that you already use. Companies donate between 2% - 14% of the card's value back to our schools. You're not paying any extra and there's no need to change where you shop.
It's easy to participate! Where do you spend money every month? Do you eat at Wendy's, Mancino’s or Texas Roadhouse? How about going to Celebration
Cinema to catch a movie? If you buy shoes at Payless, books at Barnes& Noble, clothes at Sears or American Eagle, or home project materials at
Lowe's or Home Depot, then Scrip has cards for you!
