Nutrition Services



We are proud to be able to offer fresh and nutritious food to our students daily when they opt to purchase lunch at school. Most menu items are served with fresh vegetables daily. Also available daily is access to the garden bar as part of our entrée. At our garden bar we serve tossed salad, beans, dairy products, a variety of other salads, and fresh fruit. Students are able to choose what they take from this area. Meals come with regular milk, chocolate milk, or juice.

Grades Kindergarten through Fifth Grade: $3.75
Grades Sixth through Eighth Grade: $4.25
Adult Lunches: $5.00

Accounts and Payment Methods

When enrolled, all students are issued a lunch account which is accessed by telling the cashier their name and teacher’s name. Lunches are served on a pre-paid basis and parent/guardians may purchase any number of lunches in advance at the front office or on the online parent portal daily. In the event of forgotten lunch money, students may charge no more than two lunches to their account before payment to bring the account current is expected. Parents will be contacted when their child has had to charge a lunch and payment must be received the next day. Students may also bring lunches from home and purchase milk. When an account becomes overdrawn by two meals, a student will be given the alternative meal, consisting of a grain, protein, and fruit until the account is paid and prepayment funds are put onto the account.

Families will be contacted when their account reaches a $0 balance or becomes overdrawn. Immediate payment is expected upon notification. Ala carte menu items are not available to purchase for students whose accounts are at a balance of $0 or overdrawn.

Lunch Account Parent Portal

Lunches are served on a pre-paid basis and parents may purchase any number of lunches in advance. Making a payment online is the fastest way to credit a student’s lunch account. All parents are highly encouraged to create an account for their student(s) through the portal. This will enable parents to monitor account activity even if they choose to make a payment with cash or check to the office. Parent Portal Payments made online are subject to a $2.15 fee per transaction.

You may apply for the Free and Reduced Lunch program by filling out an application and submitting that to our office. Students who are participating in the Free or Reduced Lunch Program from the previous school year need to submit a new application for the current school year. Applications will be processed within the first 30 days of school. You will be notified by our staff as to the status of your application within that time frame. Until eligibility is determined students are required to pay full price.


Minimum Days

Lunch is served on minimum days with a parent chaperone only or students who are attending our Later Gator program. On minimum days, we recommend that students bring a substantial snack for their morning recess.
