Please make sure your child's cafeteria account is up-to-date. We have many students who currently owe money to the cafeteria and we need to get these charges taken care of before the last day of school. If students have balances remaining on their cafeteria accounts at the end of the year, those balances will follow them into next year as long as they stay within Watauga County Schools. If you would like to make a donation to help offset charges for a child in need, please send those donations in to Mrs. Anna Miller, cafeteria manager. Checks may be made out to Parkway School Cafeteria.
