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.

As a reminder: Parents if you are bringing your student lunch please do not include pop or soda. This is in violation of USDA’s policy that states carbonated beverages such as soda, cannot be sold, served, or given away to students where school meals are served or eaten. Parents bringing soda to school for their student can jeopardize funding for the lunch and breakfast program.If you have any questions please contact Erin Ripley, Food Service Director, at 724-7121.

Special Meal Accommodations: 

Nutrition Services will provide alternate foods for students with a disability, if requested and a completed physician prescription is submitted to the school nurse. Examples of conditions that qualify as a disability include muscular dystrophy, metabolic disorders, and anaphylactic food allergy. A food intolerance or an allergy that does not cause anaphylaxis does not meet the definition of a disability.

If your student has special dietary needs, please review the Guidelines for Accommodating Children with Special Needs. A physician prescription form is required for any menu modifications; please have a doctor complete the Physician Letter for Students with a Disability and return it to your school nurse. If your student has diabetes and needs carbohydrate information, please complete the Carbohydrate Menu Request Form and return it to your school nurse.

School Meals Rock!  Visit: School Meals that Rock

Research studies from Baylor (TX), Tufts (MA) and Virginia Tech (VA) confirm that when comparing school lunch to lunches brought from home, lunches brought from home rarely meet the tough nutrition standards now required in all USDA school meals programs. Many contained sugary drinks that cannot be sold in schools.
