Hot Lunch and Allergy Concerns
The hot lunch offered through the school is provided by Three Brothers and cooked off-site.  The school is unable to guaranty that the lunches are allergen free for every student who has signed up for the lunch.
When asked, the school will do its best to coordinate between the family and Three Brothers to answer questions about allergens in the food and to make accommodations when possible.
However, we must ultimately leave it up to parents and guardians to confirm that the lunch is acceptable for their son.
