 LUNCH ON THE LAWN: McCabe will host a series of ‘Lunch on the Lawn’ events to be held during your child’s normal lunch time.  Every grade level will have an assigned day.  Check the website for your child’s day!  www.muesd.net

Our first event will be on November 13th for TK and 7th grade. 

Lunch on the Lawn Guidelines: 

  • Have your ID in hand when you arrive at the office to expedite the check-in process with Raptor.
  • Bring a picnic or fast-food lunch to share with your child.
  • Bring a blanket or towel to sit on in the grass area as tables/benches will not be available.
  • Adult lunches will not be served out of the cafeteria.
  • Children will stay with their class until they see their parent and they are dismissed by their teacher.
  • Students who do not have a parent present when they walk to the cafeteria will eat inside the cafeteria.  You’re welcome to take your child from the cafeteria once you’ve checked in through the office.
  • Adults may eat ONLY with their own children and must be listed on the child’s emergency contact list.  Lunch passes will not be accepted on ‘Lunch on the Lawn’ days.
  • Please do not sign your child out after the event.  School attendance is important.
  • We ask that sibling attending either McCabe or Corfman not be pulled from class to eat with a sibling.  We want each child to have their special day!
  • In the event of inclement weather, the day will be postponed to a day when the weather is a little nicer. 

 8th GRADE BBQ: If you haven’t been approached by an 8th grade student to purchase a $10 BBQ ticket to support their Catalina trip in May, stop on by either school office to purchase a ticket for a tasty deep-pit beef BBQ plate with all the fixin’s on Sunday, 11/17!  Drive-thru only from 11:00 AM-3:00 PM at the Corfman MPR.

 MY SCHOOL BUCKS: The website for My School Bucks will be down for scheduled maintenance from November 7-17, 2019.  Payments may be made in either school office.

 BLUE NOTES: If you need to pick your child up from school early for any reason, please call the school office by 11:00 AM for a Blue Note.  This will give the teacher advance notice of your child leaving early and have him/her ready to go when you get here. 

If a Blue Note is not called in prior to your arrival, you will be asked to sign in with your ID to pick your child up from the classroom, computer lab, library, fields, or cafeteria.
