Lunch Menu Change

Hel­lo Liholi­ho Ohana,

There has been a change to the lunch menu due to the school clo­sure last week.

Fri­day 8/31 will be the bread­ed chick­en strip meal from 8/28.

Sor­ry for the late notice but the 8/28 menu changed to:

Por­tuguese sausage instead of the Frank­furter (hot dog).
The rest of the meal was the same ( rice, peach­es and juice).

Chick­en pas­ta with cream sauce
Hot veg­eta­bles
Orange wedges
Whole grain roll

Thank you for your under­stand­ing!

Also, a big maha­lo to the teach­ers and staff at Liholi­ho for help­ing our chil­dren grow into respect­ful, respon­si­ble, and safe indi­vid­u­als as well as for sup­port­ing the PTA and cre­at­ing a wel­com­ing envi­ron­ment for all of us.
