Senior Lunch Privilege - Off-campus 



“Last First Day” Breakfast - It has become a tradition at Silverdale for parents to provide breakfast for the seniors on the first day of school (August 16th).  This is strictly a parent-led event. Please work together to make this a special time. We will reserve the lobby to the right of the reception desk for you to fill with breakfast items that morning (this should include drinks and paper goods).  Items that don’t need refrigeration can be dropped off at the reception desk the day before if needed.
