School Menus

Our meals consist of five components: a protein, a (preferably whole) grain, vegetables, fruit and milk. If you look at our menus you will see that we are creative and strive to introduce children to a variety of foods, and encourage them to eat a balanced and nutritious meal.

Reminder!  Our School Meals Charging Policy

At our elementary and middle schools, if a student has forgotten to bring their lunch money, they can charge their lunch for that day. They are not allowed to charge snacks, or purchase snacks if they have an outstanding charge. There will be no charging allowed at the High School. 
Charges must be paid back promptly. If a student has two charges outstanding, they will not be denied a lunch, but only will be allowed to charge a cheese or sunbutter sandwich with a piece of fruit and a milk. 
You can easily pre-pay for your child’s meals online at (see below). For more information, call Nutrition Services at (508) 881-0165.
