NOTE TO PARENTS REGARDING LUNCH ACCOUNTS:

  As the end of the 



school year is quickly approaching, all lunch accounts must be kept in good 

standing by having a positive balance at all times

​.  If your family account has a 

negative balance your children may be served an alternate lunch.  The school can not 

carry negative balances.  You can register to check the balance in your account by going 

to the “lunch login” icon on the school website and set up your account.  You can also set 

up your family to put money in your lunch account through the “efunds” icon on the 

website to save sending cash or a personal check to school.  If you have any questions, 

please call the school office in Brainard 402-545-2081.

TOPP NOTE:

​  ​


It’s time to celebrate!  Summer is right around the corner.  We ask all of 

you teenagers out there to make the responsible choice.  Remember, Zero Tolerance 

means zero chances.  Stay alive – Don’t Drink and Drive and Have A Safe Summer! 

 

 



CAUTION - THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL

 - An alarming trend seems to be 



developing in recent years in the midlands.  Celebrating the end of the school year has 

often become the time to have an “end of the year” unsupervised party.  Many of these 

parties offer alcohol or other drugs for use by students.  Since school often is dismissed 

early on the last day of the school year, students organize a party at someone’s home or 

cabin where parents will not be present.  The purpose of the party is not only to 

celebrate the end of the school year, but also to have one last time together before 

friends go separate ways for the next few months.  Schools rarely know about the 

parties.  Parents often do not understand the scope of danger involved.  This new 

custom may or may not be related to Senior Skip Day.  This traditional day involves 

seniors planning a day when all “skip” school the same day and meet for a party.  The 

site is usually someone’s cabin or an area near rivers or campsites.  Alcohol and other 

drugs are nearly always available all day long.  Again, schools usually do not know about 

the parties.  Again, parents rarely understand the scope of the danger involved.  In 

recent years, both of these types of unsupervised parties have resulted in tragedy.  One 

“last day of school” party resulted in a young teen driving while intoxicated and killing a 

young father and injuring his daughter.  A senior boy was killed by a senior girl driver 

leaving a Senior Skip Day party.  News reports indicate that both seniors had been 

drinking.  Reports from throughout our area indicate that unplanned sex, rapes, fights, 

violence and other dangerous problems have also been associated with both of these 

types of parties.  Parents should be warned to know where their children are, whom they 

are with and what they are doing.  Parents should also be prepared to say “no” to any 

dangerous, unsupervised parties....PRIDE - Omaha, Inc.
