NEW! Back to Boonli
Lunch (for everyone) and drop-in Early Care and Friends Club (Primary, Elementary & Junior High) are available to order through Boonli. It’s very helpful for our kitchen staff if your child is signed up for lunch in advance so they know how much food to prepare! Nido/YCC: please sign up for lunch for the full semester. Primary through Junior High: option to order lunch day-by-day or use the ‘Quickpick’ option to order every day. Please contact Marty with any Boonli questions.
