School food services will not extend middle or high school students borrowing privileges.  If, however, a student comes to the cafeteria for lunch and forgets to bring their lunch money, the cafeteria manager can provide the student with a temporary loan until the following day.  Temporary loans to students should not be for more than one day.  Cashier personnel will send student with tray to cafeteria manager to fill out meal loan form.

Money may not be borrowed to purchase special sales, a la carte or extra items during meal service time.

Locker Rentals

This school year, 2014-2015, there will be a locker rental fee of $2.00. The locker fee must be paid in advance of receiving the locker number and combination.

Science Department Supply Fee

Unfortunately, the decline in state and district funding to schools, and departments within schools, has coincided with the rising costs of laboratory materials in our economy.  Therefore, the Science department is respectfully asking for a $5.00 lab donation from each student or family, as it has become increasingly hard to provide the type of materials to our students without the help of the Bruner community.



Parents and students, the 2015 8th grade class trip is scheduled for May 2015. Reserve your spot now by making a deposit, so you don't get left out. Only 45 student spots available!!! Click HERE to read the informational letter pertaining to the date and cost. For additional information contact Mrs. Jackson or Mrs. Soltis.
