School Meals Information
Breakfast & Lunch is served daily in all school buildings. All of the cafeterias in The District utilize a provision of the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs referred to as 'offer vs. serve'. This allows students the right to refuse up to two items of the planned menu. If a child refuses one or two items, the full price is still charged; therefore, we encourage students to take the full lunch that is offered. Note, breakfast is not served on delayed start days.
Meal Pricing and Menus for 2020-2021 School Year - *Universal Free Meals have been extended through June 30! On October 9, 2020 the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced the extension of nationwide waivers permitting Free Student Meals for schools operating USDA meals programs. This extension is through June 30, 2021. Each student's 1st reimbursable meal at breakfast and lunch is Free.

Free and Reduced Priced Meals
Applying for Free & Reduced Meals in 2020-21 is still needed.
