View Breakfast & Lunch Menus

All school cafeterias operate on a computerized lunch system. Students have a lunch account available for their use. Parents may deposit money into their child/children’s account at their convenience and may do so weekly, monthly, or yearly. If you would like restrictions placed on your child/children’s account, please send it in writing to the cafeteria manager at your child/children’s school. For example, if you don’t want your child to purchase a la carte items or breakfast, then the money will be used for lunch only.

If you have questions concerning free and reduced lunch contact Betsy Sumner.

For all other questions please contact Lisa Fackler.

MEDIA CENTER
Media Clerk: Christy Davey
The Bridgepoint Library Media Center serves students kindergarten through fifth grade. Mrs. Davey, the media specialist, holds weekly grade level scheduled classes with the students. During these classes, story times are held, library skills are taught, computer activities are conducted, and books are checked out.
The library is automated using Library 4 Universal (L4U), which gives teachers access the school library via the internet from their classrooms.
The students participate in the Scholastic Reading Counts program. In this program, students read and take tests over books. Points are earned and incentives are given.
READERS become LEADERS!
