Grab-n-Go Breakfast

Beginning October 1st, middle school and high school students will have a “grab-n-go” option for breakfast. The cost will be the same but menu items will be able to be taken to their lockers and eaten when convenient for the student.

Recipe Contest

New contest! The kitchen is looking for new menu ideas.  There will be a suggestion box located in the cafeteria on top of the microwave oven.  Students and staff are encouraged to write down their menu suggestions along with recipes to place in this box.  You can also email your suggestions to  Each time your menu suggestion is used, your meal is free!

Update To Learning Portal Login

Note to those using the web address to log into the learning portal:

As you may have noticed, the web address now redirects you to this page(  In an effort to overcome some of the issues the ESU is currently experiencing, we are now bypassing the portal page and will instead use the buttons to the left under the heading “Learning Portal Logins” to log into Google Drive( email) and HSPS Moodle(online learning).  You will still use the same email address and password to log into those services when prompted.  My apologies for the change, but this seemed the easiest way to work around the difficulties with the ESU portal page.  Thank you for understanding.
