If your child is learning on campus, they can go through the cafeteria line to grab a complete meal. 

Primary breakfast starts at 7:30 am (and students should be in the cafeteria by 7:45 am at the latest); take the green line and drop your student off at the courtyard entrance. 

Middle School students may eat breakfast at the Mays cafeteria and High School students may eat breakfast at the Primary Cafeteria.
