Meal Options

Lunch Menu

The monthly Lunch Menu is posted on the school web site to plan for meals in advance. For children, the school lunch program provides a nutritious meal that contains 1/3 of the recommended dietary allowance of necessary nutrients. For parents, the program offers a convenient method of providing a nutritionally balanced lunch. For schools, the program enhances children’s learning abilities by contributing to their physical and mental well being. It is not possible to charge or borrow from another students lunch account.

If a 5th grade child wants second helpings of the main menu item (when available) $.50 will be deducted from their lunch account. Students must have a positive balance in their lunch account to purchase seconds.

Milk

One carton of milk is included in a school lunch. Extra milk may be purchased. Kindergarten students have a milk-break during the school day. Water or 100% juice are acceptable at lunch, however any other beverages such as soda are not permitted.

Eat lunch with your student

Parents are welcome to join their child for lunch. Parents must contact the Food Service office by 10:00 am that morning, so we can prepare enough food for the day. The cost is $3.55 ( please bring exact change) , which must be paid in the Food Service office before entering the serving line. Parents eating with their child may not use the student’s account. Lunches brought in from fast-food restaurants are not allowed. This applies for students and adults.
