Developing proper nutritional habits in this day and age is not an easy task, but not developing those habits has overwhelming consequences. Our school is very concerned about this aspect of our student’s lives. We know that it has an effect on their total well-being and may have an impact on their academic performance as well.

Free and Reduced Lunches

Applications for free lunch and reduced lunch prices are available through the school office or can be downloaded by clicking here.

Lunch Menus

Each month we like to post the menu for students and parents to see what will be offered at both campuses. While the menu for each month should be posted, please offer a measure of grace as it may not get posted until after the month has started. Thank you!

Following the National School Lunch Program, we are required to serve/offer food from several components identified by the following lunch menu example: 

The lunch to the right meets this by serving the following foods/serving size
