Feeling hungry? See the weekly lunch menu that comes home in your folder or visit our Menu Page.
School lunches served in our school meet the federal nutrition standards for school meals. Lunch offers protein-rich foods, vegetables, fruit, rich whole grain bread and a milk choice. Students who bring lunch from home may purchase milk or juice in the cafeteria. Sharing food items among others is discouraged.
 
 
Paying for School Lunch
You need to pay for school lunches ahead of time. We’ll keep your lunch balance on the school computer to make it easy to buy lunch every day. Bring your school lunch payments to the front office or pay in the lunch line. You can pay in cash, by check, or pay online using the Parent Portal link at the top of the page.

Lunch Accounts
No more than three unpaid meal charges are allowed on a student's account. All meal accounts should be paid in full by the end of the school year; therefore, charges during the last two weeks of school are discouraged.

At the end of the year, lunch balances transfer to the next grade or school with you. Refunds will be issued upon request, if a student is leaving the school. To obtain a refund, you must complete a written request and submit it to the school's front desk.

Free and Reduced Lunches
Families experiencing difficult financial circumstances may qualify for free or reduced price meals. You may request an application form at the front desk.

Treat Policy
Food brought to school for treats must be commercially prepared and in a sealed, unopened package. Unfortunately, we cannot serve food prepared at home in the school. It would be best if students did not bring sweets so that we might better support our healthy guidelines.

Food Allergies and Lactose Intolerance
All allergies should be reported to the school health office immediately. Students who have an allergic reaction to milk must provide a physician’s statement before we can substitute a juice drink for milk.
Lactose intolerance should not be confused with food allergies. The school lunch program is required to serve fluid milk and offers low fat, fat-free, and flavored fat-free milk. Upon the written request of a parent/guardian, lactose-reduced milk will be supplied for children who are lactose intolerant.
