WHAT MAKES A MEAL?
Shore 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 and lunch, students must take three items including
at least one fruit or vegetable in order to purchase the regular meal.
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
(found online as one of our department
documents), signed by a physician, to the school nurse or Food Services
Department at the Administration Center.
