Your school cafeteria offers a variety of meals to choose from daily for breakfast and lunch.
Even if your children bring their lunch and want to buy an entrée ex: hamburger (which costs $2.00) have them pick up two other items ex: fruit & milk, and their meal will be at no charge.
The success of this program which will determine if it will be offered in future years, is dependent on the number of students eating breakfast & lunch (participation) in our schools. So please encourage your child to eat in the cafeteria.
We will still be offering a variety of snacks for students to purchase. You may put money on their account for snack items and extra servings through PowerSchool or SchoolCafe. When funds are depleted from account, snack items cannot be charged. You can go to www.schoolcafe.com for 24/7 free access to your child’s account to see what they purchase and the balance of their account.
*(Another half cup of fruit has been added to breakfast for a total of 1 cup. Juice is served in ½ cup portions and either canned fruit in juice or fresh fruit is offered as the other ½ cup serving)
