Early Pick-Ups

Research has shown that missing part of the school day is educationally detrimental to students. In addition to losing valuable educational time, it is also distracting to the rest of the class when a student leaves the room and the teacher has to stop instruction for your dismissal. Please don't pull your child from class to

"Beat the Rush."

New Regulations on Milk Substitutes

Because of the USDA nutritional regulations, schools participating in National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs will no longer be allowed to offer juice as a replacement in cases of milk allergies or because of other non-disabling reasons.  Mesa County Valley School District 51 Nutrition Services will instead offer a lactose free soy substitute in these instances.  Juice will still be available for students to purchase as an a la carte item ($.65).
