Special Announcements

Food Sales and Outside Food Policy

Summit participates in the National School Lunch Program and serves breakfast and lunch daily for all students. We also allow students to bring their own meals to school or for parents to drop off individual meals for students. This ensures the health and safety of every student. In some rare cases, special community celebrations will include food organized by faculty or parents. These celebrations take into consideration student health and food safety guidelines.

In order to maintain a safe, focused learning environment and  operate within the local health code, we require that students and families respect the following rules:

1. Students are not permitted to distribute or sell communal food to other students at school during school hours.

2. Students or families may not order food to be delivered at the school. A parent who drops off food for their child must personally give the food to an adult at the front office and we will ensure that the student receives it. Parents may only bring lunch for their individual child.

3. Students are not allowed to leave campus to get food from a parent or anyone else.

4. Any food sales must be approved by the Operations Manager as a school-sponsored fundraiser that meets school and federal guidelines.

5. If any of these rules are not followed, an administrator will hold the food until the end of the school day and/or contact a family member to pick up the food.


College Corner

Save the Date: Testing, Scholarship, and Financial Aid Night: Wednesday, January 16

We encourage all families to attend the next event in our parent education series at 7 PM on Wednesday, January 16: Our Financial Aid and College Testing Night. This event is highly encouraged for all 11th grade students and their families, but 9th and 10th grade families are also welcome to attend. We will explain more about the standardized tests that students take in 11th grade in preparation for college, such as the SAT, ACT, and AP tests, and go over the importance of the upcoming standardized tests. We will also have an expert from a local college present about financial aid and the process of applying for it. Parents have shared that attending this event is one of the most helpful things they’ve done to understand the financial aid process and how to pay for college.
