- What should I know about packing lunch?
- There is no way for a student heat up his or her lunch. A Thermos is a good way to keep food warm.
- There is also no refrigeration, so be sure to use ice packs for items that need to stay cold.
- Until you figure out your child's food requirements, pack a couple of extra snacks so your little one has enough energy to last throughout the day.
- Pack a drink for your child, or send $.50 in an envelope to purchase milk. You may also set up an online account with My Payments Plus.
What should I know about purchasing lunch at school?
- School lunch is $2.50 per day (or a reduced price of $.40 per day if qualified). A full student lunch includes a choice of entrée (supplying protein and grain), up to 3 vegetable side dishes, 1 fruit side dish, and milk (white or chocolate skim). A cold vegetable and fruit bar is available daily, and 2 hot fruits or vegetables are offered daily on the serving line. There is 1 hot entrée, and 1 alternate entrée available daily.
- Students are able to charge up to 2 lunches. After this, a cheese sandwich lunch will be available until the balance is paid.
- If your child is choosing school lunch for the day, they will either need to send money in an envelope to school, or the parent/guardian can set up an on-line account through MyPaymentsPlus that the money will be drawn from.
- If you have an account, the child should let the lunch aide know they are getting school lunch that day, and the money will be drawn from the account. When the children are older, they will receive an ID card that will work to draw money from that account.
What if I want to eat lunch with my child?
- You may join your child for lunch in the Great Room. Stop by the office first and get a visitor’s badge.
