We want to ensure that your child receives the fuel necessary to be successful in the classroom. Our low cost meals provide your child with the best nourishment, variety, and service available. Because diet has a long-range effect on health, happiness, education and success for your child, our healthy meals are an opportunity to enhance their future and ability to learn. All menus are analyzed so that each week we are assured that our menus meet the dietary guidelines. Your child comes first at Nutrition Services, so please give us the opportunity to assist in their physical and intellectual fitness. Please call me or any of the kitchens if you have any questions or ideas to improve what we do for your child. You are also always welcome to join your child for a meal at school.

Lowfat milk is included with all meals. Extra milk or juice may be purchased for $.75. We offer non-fat and 1% white milk, non-fat chocolate milk, apple and orange juice. Because the district gets reimbursed for serving a "complete meal," there is no free milk.
Many kids like to buy an extra favorite entree or extra drink with their school meal. See our a la carte prices for our meal and item pricing, which includes prices for extra meals and extra entrees. Prices subject to change.
It is not our intent to allow charges. However, if a child has money in his/her meal account but it is insufficient for the day's meal, then a charge will be allowed and money will be expected the next day to cover the charge. No charging of ala cart items or second meals will be allowed. Communication regarding low balances and charges will be sent directly to the parent/guardian via email, US mail and/or by phone call as required by state legislation.
You can save $725-$800 per child a year if you qualify for free or reduced priced meals, which includes breakfast and lunch. All grade levels are included. Applications may be turned in any time during the year.
