Welcome to Nutrition Services!
Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!
The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
School Lunch Program
Lunch is available at all schools. Proper nutrition in the school age years can reinforce lifelong eating habits that contribute to a student's overall well being. This will help them to grow and learn to their fullest potential... and then go on to lead a long healthy life.
School Breakfast Program
Breakfast is available at all schools. We know that hungry children have a more difficult time doing their best work. That's why we encourage all students to begin the school day with a nutritious breakfast.
The School Breakfast Program is available to all students. It is an ideal solution on busy mornings when kids are running late or parents have to be at work early. Whatever the reason, if breakfast at home is not convenient, please have your child take advantage of breakfast at school.
If your child qualifies for free or reduced price lunches, he or she qualifies for free or reduced price breakfast at school as well.
Middle School and Jr. High School Lunch-$2.40
High School Lunch-$2.55
