Food Services

Welcome back!! 

The Nutrition Services staff is looking forward to serving you nutritious lunches once again!

Please be assured that all of our staff have been trained in food safety and district protocols.  The health of our students is our first priority!

As usual, lunch menus are available on the Nutrition Services webpage 


On August 31, 2020 the USDA announced that school meals for all children will be available free of charge until June 2021!  Click here for more information.

Students do not need to be present at pick up. Parents or guardians can pick up meals for students.


Lunch for in-school learners


What? Meals provided by the cafeteria will consist of a complete meal including an entree, fruit, vegetable, grain/bread and milk.  These will be in all disposable containers. 

Where? Students will be eating in the classroom - whenever possible, students will be allowed to eat their lunch outside. 

How? Teachers will take lunch orders in the morning and send the counts to the cafeteria, meals will be assembled and sent to the classroom at lunchtime.  Student’s names will be on the meals.  Students can also order milk at this time. 

High School/ Middle School

What? Meals provided by the cafeteria will consist of a complete meal including an entree, fruit, vegetable, grain/bread and milk. Milk and bottled water will be the only ala carte items available for purchase.  

Where? Students will be dining in the cafeteria with appropriate social distancing protocols

How? Students will be expected to follow all social distancing practices while in line to get their lunch.  At this time, students will be wearing a mask, pick up pre-packaged lunch one at a time, and keep 6 feet apart while waiting.  Appropriate signage will direct the flow of traffic and expectations during lunch.

Free and Reduced meals program

We encourage any family that thinks that they may qualify for Free or Reduced Priced meals to apply. This will allow for a smooth transition when we begin serving meals in the traditional way. If you have already received a letter from the district letting you know that you have been approved for free or reduced meals, you do not need to complete an application. This benefit will apply for the entire school year.


Our goal is to avoid cash or check transactions in the lunch line throughout the district - we ask that families fund their accounts either online at myschoolbucks or by dropping off cash or a check to the school office with the child’s name, grade and a notation that it is for lunch in the morning before school starts.  The funds will be applied to the accounts by the cafeteria staff before lunch. Note: Remember all meals are free of charge at this time, also, we will not be offering ala carte items for sale until further notice, so there is no reason to fund your accounts at this time.
