Food deliveries not permitted

Students are not permitted to order outside food of any kind, to be delivered to any of the school buildings within the District, during the school day. 

Board policy states that no food can be sold during the school day, to students, that does not meet federal guidelines and/or smart snack requirements, nor can it compete with our nutrition department, which provides full service kitchens in all buildings for our student population. 

In addition, food deliveries are a disruption during the school day that can cause safety and traffic concerns.

Free and Reduced Price Meal Eligibility

Free and reduced price meal forms can be accessed through your parent portal in Infinite Campus (click the 'more' tab at the bottom left - and then click on 'Meal Benefits') or you can download a copy of the form HERE.

If your student received free or reduced price meals last year, that benefit carries over until October 2nd. Please fill out a new form by that date so there is no interruption in your child’s meal benefits. Please continue to provide your student with money or a packed lunch until you get notification that your application has been approved. 

Our charging policy states that if a student has no money on their account they may not charge breakfast  or any a la carte items in any of our cafeterias. We will provide an elementary student with a courtesy lunch if money or lunch is forgotten, with the expectation that this would be re-payed the next day. If you have any questions regarding our nutrition department you may contact Michelle Gifford at [email protected]
