National School Breakfast & Lunch Programs-
To fulfill the nutritional requirements set by the NSLP/SBP, and to please the students in our district, our department strives to offer a variety of fun and appealing breakfast and lunches. The 2014-2015 school year marked the implementation of several new nutrition based guidelines for all schools, nationwide, participating in the NSLP/SBP. The new changes ensure that the meals being served meet calorie ranges for each age group, offer a variety of colorful fruit and vegetable choices, and contain appropriate levels of carbohydrates and protein for the average student (depending on grade level). For more information on the change in menu requirements, please review the "Meal Pattern Information" link here.
We look forward to serving the students in our district this school year! Please email or call with any questions we may be able to help answer.
