Children exhibiting any of these symptoms while at school will be sent home.

The school can not dispense medications. If your child requires medication, please give it to your child before school starts or after school.

Lunch Program

Students may bring  for their own lunches box or  purchase the Cafe de Vie with Chef Raul hot lunch program. 

Chef Raul will be using a program called MealManage to streamline the lunch choosing and buying process. On the MealManage platform, parents will be able to choose lunch from the offered menus, purchase the lunch, add money to their child(ren)'s account, and manage their email notifications.

FASRI has a nut free policy. Please check the ingredients of packaged foods when sending your child(ren) to school with a snack. Please do not make snacks that contain nuts for your child(ren) to bring to school. Please refrain from packing candy for your child(ren) as candy often contains traces of nut products.
