Free Meals Announcement
Elementary FREE Breakfast
Breakfast is free.
Once breakfast leaves the cafeteria it cannot be brought back.
Only grades PK-K and Grade 2-4 need to order ahead of time. If you forget to order we will still get your child a breakfast, but ordering assists in planning and is appreciated.
Students in grades 5-8 and grade 1 will pick up breakfast on their way to homeroom. Morning care students will eat during that time.
A complete breakfast includes; Whole Grain based Entrée, Milk, Fruit and/or 100% Fruit Juice.
The breakfast menu is posted each month on our meal menu.

Alternate lunches are available daily by request only and include all food group components:
