    Breakfast and Lunch

    Breakfast and Lunch: Students may purchase breakfast and/or lunch in the cafeteria. Information regarding breakfast and lunch, including school menus, may be found on the district website here.

    Free/ Reduced Meals: Any family who believes that their student/s may be eligible to receive free meals is required to apply using forms found on the district website here. Even if your family was eligible for free meals in past years, you must apply again this year.

    Breakfast Plan: Breakfast will be served each morning in the cafeteria beginning on the first day of school.  Students who wish to have breakfast (either receiving free breakfast or paying for breakfast) will go directly to the cafeteria after getting off of the bus or being dropped off.  

    Student Pin Numbers: When purchasing meals from the cafeteria, students will be required to punch in their unique PIN number.  Classroom teachers will provide these numbers to students. Incoming kindergarten students will receive these PINs at kindergarten orientation. Staff members are available to help them during meal time during the first days of school.

    Student Meal Accounts:  If you wish to add money to your child’s account, you may do so using the link on the district’s website, found here.
