Food Service 

As we welcome students back for the 2022-23 school year, we want to remind you about the benefit of school meals, which continue to be some of the healthiest meal options for students. Our mealtimes feature kid-approved foods and are an important part of the learning day.     

Thanks to nationwide waivers for federally funded meal programs, school meals were free to all students through the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, these waivers have expired, and schools must return to charging for breakfast and lunch. Free or reduced-priced meals are only available to students who qualify for these benefits, but all students, regardless of family situations, are encouraged to dine in the cafeteria together. For the 2022-23 school year, breakfast will cost $1.50, and lunch will cost $3.50 at the elementary’s and $3.75 for secondary students.
