During lunch, students have basically 4 options that need to be chosen from prior to 9:05 a.m. every morning. Teachers will ask students to choose from the following:
- Option 1: (white card) This is the “main” hot lunch offering.
- Option 2: (gold card) This is the “veggie” lunch offering.
- Option 3: (blue card) This is if the student chooses to bring a cold lunch and will be taking a milk. ($.35)
- Option 4: (no card) This is the cold lunch option where a child would be bringing a lunch and a beverage to school.
If your child decides to participate in the school offered lunch, they will need to make some choices as he/she moves through the line. Students are required to take a MINIMUM of 3 items (NO EXCEPTIONS!) Children are not forced to eat anything they do not want to, but they must take the food required.
If a child is late to school after 9:15 a.m., parents will be required to provide a lunch for their child as the count will already have been reported.
