***Welcome back Cougars!  I am excited to be back another year of serving you breakfast, lunch, snacks and team meals

Couple of items of note this year

1. The Cafeteria is CLOSED 10:30am-10:45am.

This is a critical time for our staff to do final line checks, make sure our food is temping safely and logging that info and making sure we have everything out to begin lunch service right at 10:45am

It would very helpful to our team if you could refrain from entering the cafeteria during this time as they want to be able to take care of your dining needs.  However, when they do, they do stress and miss things that are needed to ensure we can serve delicious and safe food

2. As you may have noticed, there has been some price increases this year.  The best way to combat those increases and get the best value is the $7 DEAL!  Any entree, hot sandwich or deli sandwich with any 2 sides and a 12oz cup is just $7

3. We also have the $7 Soup and Salad Deal! A small bowl of salad and a bowl of soup + that 12oz cup for a beverage is also just $7

4. This Friday is “Build your own Mediterranean Bowl” These “build your own” days were so popular last year that we are looking at doing them twice as often this year

That all I have for you now. If you have any questions you can reach out to me at

Thanks and Go Cougars!

– Mr. Evans
