This year's menu design will con- tinue to offer a blend of exciting new items paired with tried and true favorites from past cafes. Again this year, the caf6 will be offering a salad and Soup bar. The 23 caf6 students and 17 independent study student man- agers are very excited (nervous) about the opening. The Warrior Caf6 is open to the general public as well as the staff. The continued success of the caf6 empha- sizes the need for reservations. The seating times for 2015 will be the same as last year. The caf will be open to the public from 11:30 a.m. until I p.m. The schedule in the high school will not allow public seating after 12:40 p.m. The schedule this year presented us with some real challenges. The dessert menu will feature five choices: The Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce, Double Chocolate Mocha Trifle, a variety of Homemade Cheese Cake and new this year; a Zesty Lemon Tart. Be sure to ask your server about this week's featured dessert tart when you order. The meal price this year will be $6.50. Each meal will include a choice of beverage, salad or soup, entr6e with appropriate side dishes and a dessert. Reservations can be made by calling Andy Mogle at Norwalk High School (981-4201 ext 3115) or by email at amogle@norwalk.k12.ia.us. Take-out orders are available on a limited basis. We would appreciate a one day notice on any take-out or- ders. To go orders will not come with a beverage. Larger orders require more notice.

The Norwalk School District recently installed security cameras in all of the school buses used daily for student transpor- tation. Over the past sev- eral years, the District has implemented many secu- rity measures, primarily to protect students, but also to protect school property. Security cameras are a great tool providing valu- able information to clarify and document the actual events of an incident. The District has in- stalled numerous cameras both inside and outside of school buildings. Adding security cameras to the school buses was identi- fied on our long-term fa- cility improvement plan. During the summer of 2014, the District learned that most school districts in the Polk and Warren County area already use school bus security cam- eras. The cost to purchase and install digital cameras has considerably de- creased over the past five years, while the imaging technology has steadily improved, making the ac- tual photo data more reli- able. The bus camera in- stallation project cost ap- proximately $53,000 to in- stall eight cameras in each of the regular school buses. The cameras will be able to monitor vehicles that approach the bus from the front or rear, as well as student/passenger activity directly inside the school The antenna talks from the bus to the transportation department.

The imaging technol- ogy will be such that school administration will be able to determine events that occur on the bus and while student are exiting the bus. The cam- eras will capture images of vehicles and license plates should a vehicle driver il- legally pass a school bus. The District discussed the Concluded p. 9 q
