Because the school does not operate a cafeteria, it is difficult to resolve the problem of forgotten lunches. Please ensure that your child leaves with his/her lunch every morning. Also, kindly label any lunch box or bag with your child’s name and seal it. Your child may bring a nourishing beverage (no soda) in a non-breakable container with lunch. The school offers a healthy lunch (including milk) during the week for $2.75 or milk a la carte for $.60. You will have to set up an account on myschoolbucks.com in order to purchase lunch or milk. The cost of lunch will be deducted from your child’s lunch account each time he/she gets lunch or milk. We encourage all parents to set up an account with some monies available in case of emergency. Instructions for setting up an account and replenishing it are available on our website as well. Please be aware that students will only be allowed to charge one meal if there is no money in the account. We will no longer be able to give your child a meal if they don't have food from home and do not have money in their account.
