OUR SCHOOL RECEIVES FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS ON FREE OR REDUCED LUNCH.
Students may pre-pay by the week, month or year. You can find information here about how to register to review your child’s account and to pay on line (a small fee is charged). Students may choose one extra item with their meal only if they have funds to do so. Students may charge meals only. They may not charge a la carte items. Students who have money in a prepay account may purchase meals and a la carte items from their account. If you do not wish for your child to purchase extra items from money in their account, please write a note to the cafeteria manager. Money can always be sent with the child to purchase extra items.
Parents are invited to eat with their child in the cafeteria; however, as a courtesy to other students, we ask that you do not bring outside food such as fast food into the school cafeteria. Parents should arrive at school in time to get a visitor’s pass and report to the lunchroom hallway five minutes before the scheduled lunch time.
A monthly menu will be posted in the classroom and the daily menu will be read during morning announcements. Occasionally there will be a menu change due to late deliveries or snow days.
Please note that any outside food brought in for special snacks or birthday treats cannot be consumed until the last student has been served lunch. Should you desire to bring in a special snack for your child’s birthday or another event, please coordinate this with your child’s teacher so as not to conflict with our lunchroom policies. In addition, any food brought in to the school to be shared with students must be store bought with ingredients listed, maintained at a safe temperature and expired.
