End of the Year Lunch Balance - In order to balance our accounts in the lunch program at the close of the school year, we need to have your child's lunch account balance at 0 or above. Please bring it up to date as soon as possible.  Any remaining balance will remain in your child's account and carry over for next year. If your children will not be attending Cedar Falls schools next year, please let us know as soon as possible and they will be given a refund of the balance left in their account  at the end of the year.

Please remember to pick up medications in our nurses office before the last day of school!

Please also make sure to check on Lost and Found. All items left after the last day of school will be donated!

Dismissal Help Needed! Please make sure that you follow our daily dismissal plans. Our staff appreciate the chance to prepare for the next day when our students are picked up in a timely manner. Last, unless an adult is with their students following dismissal, students must leave immediately following dismissal and head home. This ensures that all students are safe! Thank you!
