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 2021-2022 School Year - *Universal Free Meals have been extended through June 30, 2022. The United States Department of Agriculture has extended free meal benefits to all students through the end of the 2021-22 school year.  Each student's 1st reimbursable meal at breakfast and lunch is Free.  A la carte items and second meals are not included.  

Pricing for second lunch meals is as follows-

KG–3rd       $2.40

4th–12th     $2.55

Extra Milk    $0.50

Adult Lunch   $3.40

A la carte item pricing is listed in each cafeteria.

Free and Reduced Priced Meals 

Applying for Free & Reduced Meals in 2021-22 is still needed.  There are several District and External Benefits that you may qualify for by filling out a 2021-22 Free and Reduced lunch application.  An approved Free or Reduced Priced Meals decision in 2021-22 enables the student to continue the approval for the first 30 school days of the next school year.  The USDA's Universal Free Meals is set to expire on June 30, 2022.  Please apply today.

2021-22 school course fee waivers will be mailed out to all high school students that are approved for free meals.  Student course fees will be waived once the signed fee waiver is received back.
