School Meal Prices

All Children Eat Free for 2021-2022

For the 2021-2022 school year, breakfast and lunch will be free for all children.  This is due to the United States Department of Agriculture's extension of the Seamless Summer Meals program due to COVID-19. As a result, no families will be required to complete a Free and Reduced-Price Meal Application for the 2021-2022 school year.

Additional Meals and A-La-Carte Items for Purchase

Students are provided menus with choices for breakfast and lunch in all schools regardless of grade structure.  A breakfast cereal line and hot food bar are offered daily. Middle and high school students are offered such choices as grill items, chef salads, pizza, cold sandwiches, and the traditional hot meals for lunch.  Elementary students can choose between a hot line, sandwich line, or salad daily. 

We use an offer-versus-serve method for all students. This means our food service staff will offer students food items, but students are allowed to refuse any food items they do not want.  The offer-versus-serve method reduces our food costs by decreasing waste, yet the meal qualifies for reimbursement through the National School Lunch and National School Breakfast programs.

Students are offered an initial regular meal before being allowed to purchase additional seconds and any a-la-carte items.  These items are available in addition to the school meal and are not intended to be sold individually to make a meal. Any item sold in the school must meet the requirements of our local wellness policy. 

These meal prices are consistent with prices charged in other school systems with similar demographics. Each local school nutrition staff and the nutrition department staff are available to assist in any way possible to assure that the program teaches good nutrition practices and promotes healthy eating habits.

Pay for extra meal servings and a-la-carte items on line with MySchoolBucks
Easy-to-use, convenient, private and secure.  Simply go to the myschoolbucks website to enroll and to start using the site to deposit funds into your student’s lunch account.  Once your account is established, you can check balances or fund the account anytime from your home computer, phone or fax.  Your child’s information is safe—it stays at school.  Your personal and payment card information is protected by the most advanced Internet security.  Call 855-832-5226 or visit the

Charging Meals

Payment is due at mealtime.  Elementary and Middle School Students without cash or money on account may be allowed to charge for only five days.  At that point the account must be paid before allowing additional charges. To avoid any potential embarrassment, students are given a green slip as a courtesy reminder after three charges. Also, negative balance letters are sent home weekly with each student.  All account balances will be transferred to your child’s new school if they transfer schools within the system.
