Breakfast & Lunch Menus

Please Note:  Although we do our best to serve the menu as planned, substitutions may be necessary from time to time. Additionally, in the event of a two-hour delay, middle and high schools will offer a modified breakfast menu; however, due to time constraints, breakfast will not be served at the elementary level.

What makes a meal?

The District participates in the National School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs.  These programs require certain meal components be taken by the students in order for us to provide meals at the prices listed above. For meals, we offer fruits, vegetables, meat (or meat alternatives), grain, and milk. For breakfasts, students must take three items in order to purchase the regular meal. For lunch, students must take three items, but are also required to take at least a fruit or vegetable. If students do not take the required items, cashiers will encourage them to take the necessary items before charging a la carte prices.
 
For more details about the meal components, please see our reimbursable breakfast and lunch information on the website. The District is committed to providing healthy meal options for all students. Substitutions and modifications to meals can be made for students with disabling special dietary needs.  In order for these accommodations to be made, parents should return a completed Medical Plan of Care for School Food Service form, signed by a physician, to the school nurse or Food Services Department at the Administration Center.
