Lunch is offered free of charge to all students, thanks to a wonderful grant received by Newport News Public Schools! There is no need to send in any lunch money with your child. Of course, you are welcome to pack a lunch for your child if you prefer. The lunch menu can be found online on the NNPS or WECC website, or right here on our own website! Please note that unlike elementary schools, our students are not generally given any options to choose from. There is only one lunch prepared each day. If you know your child is a picky eater, you may want to consider packing lunch.
Absolutely! Parents are always welcome to come with us on field trips. Please note that while the school provides transportation and pays the cost for students, we do not do so for any parents. All parents must provide their own transportation and pay any necessary admission fees on their own. Prior to the trip, I will send home information regarding the cost for parents to attend. We are still waiting to hear about field trips for this school year.
If you have any questions or concerns, there are several ways to get in touch with us during the day. You may give us a call at school, send in a note, or send Ms. Hayward an email using this form. Email is the best way to reach Ms. Hayward during the day, as a response can be sent without disrupting the students’ activities. Notes are generally answered the same day, unless something comes up. Phone calls during the day usually go straight to the office, and if it is not an emergency they will leave us a note to return the call after school.
You can also sign up for Remind, which will allow you to text Ms. Hayward directly. Instructions for signing up can be found here on the “Stay Informed” page. Please realize that text messages may not be answered immediately, as instruction is our focus during the day. If you have an urgent or time-sensitive concern, we recommend calling the office.
