Welcome to Food Services!

 

USDA HAS APPROVED A WAIVER ALLOWING ALL CHILDREN TO RECEIVED FREE BREAKFAST AND FREE LUNCH MEALS THROUGH THE 2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR.

BREAKFAST AND LUNCH MEALS ARE THE ONLY ITEMS A CHILD MAY RECEIVE FOR FREE.  ANY ALA CARTE ITEMS, SUCH AS MILK, STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE MONEY ON THEIR MEAL ACCOUNT TO PURCHASE ALA CARTE ITEMS.  

FREE AND REDUCED-PRICE MEAL APPLICATIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR THE 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR.  COMPLETING THE FREE AND REDUCED-PRICE MEAL APPLICATION WILL PREVENT YOUR CHILD FROM LOSING THEIR FREE OR REDUCED-PRICE MEAL STATUS ONCE THE USDA WAIVER HAS EXPIRED. STUDENTS WHO MAY QUALIFY FOR FREE MEALS, IF WE DO NOT RECEIVE AN APPLICATION FOR THE CURRENT SCHOOL YEAR, YOUR INSTRUCTIONAL FEES CANNOT BE WAIVED.

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.

 

Meals Plus Program in Cafeterias

Meals Plus is the point of sale system we are using in our school cafeterias.  The system brings a lot of great things to our district which staff, students, and parents enjoy. We are very dedicated to providing nutritious meals to your growing children and excited to be a part of their health and well-being.

Please check out our detailed lunch information on how parents may now pay for lunch online at www.payschoolscentral.com 

 

Breakfast is served daily in each building.  A grab 'n' go breakfast is served in the school cafeteria prior to the first bell.  Cost is $1.25 for full pay students, .30 for reduced and free to those students who are qualified for free meals.

PLEASE NOTE: ON A TWO-HOUR DELAY DAY BREAKFAST WILL NOT BE SERVED.

 

AT THE PRESENT TIME, TO PROTECT OUR STUDENTS, ALL MEALS WILL BE SERVED IN A CLOSED BAG OR CONTAINER.  THERE WILL BE NO ALA CARTE ITEMS OFFERED AT THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.

 

STUDENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO BRING IN "FAST FOOD" FOR SCHOOL LUNCH.  CARBONATED BEVERAGES, SODA, AND GLASS BOTTLES ARE PROHIBITED.
