Breakfast is served daily in the commons area from 8 to 8:30 a.m. From 8:30 to 9 a.m. children may take their breakfasts to their classrooms with approval from their teachers. We serve a variety of cold cereals, milk, juice and fruit. Hot breakfasts are also available. To see current menus, click here and visit the Food and Nutrition Services website.
Lunch periods are 40 minutes long with 20 minutes for lunch and 20 minutes for recess. We do go outside as much as possible so please make sure that your child is dressed for outdoor weather. Each class is assigned a lunch supervisor who will assist the children and help with any problems.
Hot lunches are offered daily along with fresh fruit, juice, fruit cups, rolls and milk. Additional milk costs 40 cents and can be purchased separately. If your child is bringing a lunch from home, please make sure that he or she has the proper utensils. We provide them only for children who are purchasing a hot lunch. Also, fast food, energy drinks such as Red Bull etc., pop and coffee drinks are not allowed.
If a child comes to school without a lunch, he or she will be given a peanut butter sandwich and milk. It is parents' responsibility to make sure their child comes prepared to school.
Payments can be made daily, weekly or monthly. We accept cash or checks. To pay online, please register at www.mypaymentsplus.com. When a child receives a breakfast, lunch or milk, it will be deducted from his or her account. If a child has a negative account and a payment is made, the negative balance will be deducted first.
Monthly menus are available online and they are sent home. We also have the week’s choices posted in the lunchroom.
If you are currently receiving free or reduced-price lunches, please make sure you reapply at the beginning of each new school year.
