****Beginning TODAY, Flik will again offer a-la-carte purchases

We will offer the same menu that is on the pre-order as well as an additional option that is not on the menu

We will also have salads available for grab and go while they last

As we move back towards a more normal service, I want to remind you that pre-ordering is still the fastest way to get your meal, doesn’t require going through the cashier line (unless you make additional purchases) and is the best value for your dollar

Please help us maintain this level of service by continuing to practice social distancing while waiting your turn in line and by not loitering in the dining hall area

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask. My email is

Leaders interested in learning more about OWNERSHIP should plan to attend our March 3rd Leadership Lunch with Dr. Regina Nixon, our Lower School Director.
