What's on the Menu Today?
Our menus offer tasty and nutritious choices to help you plan your child’s meals at school. All menu items comply with the USDA's standards for school lunch and include fresh, local fruits and vegetables every day. All schools also offer salad bars.
Pre-paying for Meals Saves Time
We operate cashless lunch lines in all of our elementary schools. Prepaying your student's meal accounts has several benefits:
- The lunch lines go faster, giving students more time to eat, relax, and play.
- It eliminates the worry about losing or searching for lunch money every day.
- You know that your money is used for meals and is not stolen or used other things.
Convenient Payment Options
Online payments are a simple, safe and secure way to make payments to your students account 24 hours a day at your convenience.
If you prefer to pay with check or cash, you can bring money to the school or send it with your student. If you choose this option, please put the payment in an envelope that is clearly marked with the following information:
- Student's name
- Student ID Number
- $ amount enclosed
- Check number (if paying with check)
Turn in prepaid deposits to the school office. No money is accepted in the lunch line at our elementary schools. Lunch envelopes are available in the front office of your school
Good Nutrition for Healthy Living
Our team of food service and nutrition professionals is dedicated to providing nutritious and delicious food and helping children develop healthy habits for life.
- We provide healthy, affordable, tasty meals every school day. We offer lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, and all of the grains we use are whole-grain rich. Milk choices are fat-free and low-fat, and our meals are low in salt, low in saturated fat, and have no trans fat. We plan our meals to meet students’ age-specific nutrition and calorie requirements and meet state and federal requirements that are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines.
- We sponsor education programs that make learning about nutrition fun. Educational programs, such as Harvest of the Month, Farm Field Trips and school-based Farmer’s Markets allow students to see, touch, taste and learn about fruits and vegetables of all kinds. Often, students discover that they like these foods and begin choosing them more often at mealtime.
- We offer information about nutrition that parents can use at home with the family. Parents often ask us how they can support nutrition and fitness education at home. We provide quarterly newsletters that provide tips and tricks to encourage healthy eating at home. We are also available by phone, email or in person to answer any questions that parents might have about nutrition.
