Breakfast & Lunch Program

Our current lunch menu can be found at the bottom of this page.


2015-2016 Breakfast & Lunch Prices and Accounts

  • Breakfast is $1.40 daily for elementary students and $2.00 for staff and visitors of any age.  For those students qualifying for reduced-price breakfasts, the cost is $.30.
  • Lunch is $2.40 daily for elementary students and $3.40 for staff and visitors of any age.  For those students qualifying for reduced-price lunch, the cost is $.40.
  • Afternoon milk is $.40 daily for all students.
  • Any amount of money can be added to a student’s lunch account at any time.  To give you an idea for budgeting, if a student eats breakfast, lunch, and afternoon milk each day, the total will be approximately $21/week or about $82/month.  For those that do not eat breakfast at school, a good estimate would be $14.00/week or $54/month.  Please also  consider any extra servings that your child may purchase.

The account works like a debit card.  You may add any amount to the account at any time, and meals are deducted from this account.  Students are not permitted to carry a negative balance.  Account balances may be checked online, and deposits can be made at any time online using a credit card.  CLICK HERE to visit our secure online account system.  To set up a password and account, contact the office.


Breakfast & Lunch Serving Times

  • Breakfast is served from 7:50 to 8:15 daily.
  • Approximate lunch times are as follows: Kindergarten at 11:00; 1st at 11:10; 2nd at 11:38; 3rd  at 11:40; 4th & 5th – at 12:05.  Lunch times vary on early dismissal days and we discourage visitors on early dismissal days.


Parent Visitors at Lunch Time

We encourage parents and parent-approved visitors to have lunch at school with your child on occasion.  We ask that you follow these guidelines:

  • We strongly discourage mealtime visitors at the following times: early dismissal days, the week before a holiday, and the first & last two weeks of the school year.
  • Visitors: Stop in the office to sign our visitor log and obtain a D-G guest pass to wear while in the building.
  • Please notify the office by 8:30 a.m. if you will be visiting.   This gives us an accurate count so we will be sure to have enough food.  Please call or email the school to notify us — do not ask your child to let us know.
  • Parents: please call to notify us of any non-parent visitors so we know that they have your approval.


Purchasing Extra Servings

Students are able to purchase extra servings of the main dish, side items, and milk at lunch and breakfast time by charging it to their accounts. We will no longer be taking cash for extra items during meal time. Students must have sufficient funds in their accounts to purchase extra items. Parents are encouraged to use our online parent access system to track your child’s purchases.  If you do NOT want your child to be able to purchase extra servings from their accounts please notify the office.
