About school meals: The USDA has announced that ALL students -- regardless of family income -- will be able to have a free breakfast and lunch at their school during the 2021 - 2022 school year! This is for the basic breakfast and lunch offered.
For lunch, students may still purchase a la carte items.
Dress Code Alert for Students: Although midriff-revealing tops are a fashion trend, they are not appropriate attire for school.
Page 25 of Student Handbook reads as follows:"(f) Tank tops and similar shirts or blouses, when worn without another top, are not permitted."
See Ruckel Dress Code HERE

We will host an Open House within the first two weeks of school.
The Open House will be in the evening and give you a chance to follow your child's schedule
