Nutrition - Breakfast / Lunch

Breakfast

Our school cafeteria can provide your child with breakfast, as well as lunch.  Breakfast is served daily at 7:30 AM.  All students are welcome. (Students not eating breakfast should arrive at school no sooner than 7:50 AM.) Monthly menus are sent home. For your convenience, lunch tickets may be purchased through the school or cafeteria office.

Breakfast: $2.00

Nutrition Break

Each day, students will have a nutrition/recess break in the morning. If you send a snack with your child, package it separately from the lunch so the child will know which is which, and not eat his/her lunch for a snack!  Also, send nutritious snacks such as fruits, veggies, crackers, peanut butter, cheese, yogurt, etc. and avoid sending chips, cookies, treats, or other unhealthy items.  Sodas, candy and gum are not permitted. Fried chips are not recommended.  Research shows that students who have healthy breakfasts and snacks have far more mental energy for studying and working than those who eat sugary, non-nutritive foods.  Help your child by giving him/her healthy choices.

Lunch

Students may bring or buy their lunches.  If your child brings a lunch to school, please be sure the lunch pail or sack is clearly marked with your child's name and room number. Sodas, candy and gum are not permitted.    Milk (whole, lowfat, or chocolate) may be purchased for $.50.  If it is unavoidable and you must bring your child's lunch to school, please drop it off at the office with name and room number attached.  We appreciate you keeping this practice to "special" occasions. Please let your child know in the morning if you will be delivering his/her lunch to the office so that he/she will come and pick it up.  The classroom will not be called. There is a bin in the office for lunch drop-off.  Do not go directly to classrooms to drop off items

Children are to follow all cafeteria rules and the directions of  noon supervisors.  Children are required to dispose of their own trash and to leave their eating area clean.

No student is permitted to leave our school campus during lunchtime, unless he/she is signed out and picked up by a parent or guardian.
