Breakfast is offered in ALL Colonial Schools for no cost to ALL students. All elementary students eat breakfast in their classroom allowing them more time to eat their whole meal and the ability to sit with peers. Secondary students will use the school cafeterias for breakfast service, certain middle school grades may offer a grab and go service allowing students to eat breakfast in their classroom.

Lunch is offered in ALL schools for no cost to ALL students.  All lunches will be eaten in the school cafeteria. Students have option to select their lunch meal from a variety of offerings. All meals served meet all federal USDA regulations as part of the National School Lunch Program.

In addition to lunches we have a variety of healthy a la carte snacks that meet the wellness policy guidelines for an approved USDA smart snack; popcorn, reduced fat chips, rice krispie bars and 100% fruit juices.

Important Information:

  • All menus may be subject to change.

  • Both hot dogs and sausage DO NOT contain pork.  Pork products may be offered on select menu items and will be noted on the menu
  • Every Elementary school cafeteria does not purchase or serve any peanuts or tree nut products.  Please note we are not "nut free" facilities since students/staff are allowed to bring food items from home that may contain nuts.  *Hershey's Ice Cream is produced in a facility containing nuts.
