A La Carte Pricing Update
Due to increased food cost, there were some increases in a la carte prices beginning January 2020. Snack items at elementary schools increased to $0.75. The mini Rice Krispies treat remains $0.25. Small bottled water increased to $0.50 and large bottled water (16.9 oz.) increased to $1.00. Price increases for specific snack and beverage items at the middle school and high school are posted in the cafeteria.
*Due to the National coin shortage, we are unable to give change for a la carte purchases at this time. Any remaining money will go on the student's lunch account and can be used for a future purchase. Thank you for your understanding!
