Menu changes for the week of Oct. 24th:

There will be a change to next week's menu: the menus for Monday and Friday will flip flop.  The meatloaf for our district and many others was diverted away from schools and given to the Salvation Army to be served in shelters last week and our next shipment does not arrive until Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.  Thank you for your understanding!
