**Please note that our menus are subject to change because of product availability. We are sorry for any inconveniences this may cause our students. This school year the Diocese has opted to only serve lunch through the Federal School Lunch Program. *Breakfast will not be served. It is important that children receive a breakfast with a protein and grain, as well as a milk or juice component each morning. Parents are encouraged to be sure to have their child/ren eat something before coming to school. If you choose to have your child bring something to eat at school between 7:30am and 7:50am they will be permitted to sit in the cafeteria at a designated table to do so.
There is a SNACK time built into each day from 10:10am to 10:25am. Different homeroom teachers have a system for snack time. Students must provide their own snack and may purchase milk during that time.
If your child wishes to bring his/her lunch from home, it must be kept in their classroom. This lunch may not contain soft drinks or other carbonated beverages. Highly caffeinated drinks should be avoided. Our school does not have adequate space to keep lunch boxes or drinks in the cafeteria's refrigerator. Any lunch brought from home must have its own means of keeping the contents from spoiling. Please send in only nutritional lunches, per our School Wellness Policy. Our school lunches provide 1/3 of the recommended dietary allowances for school age children.
Students are under the supervision of a teacher or staff person during their lunch period. Students are expected to show everyone proper respect. Students must stay in their assigned seats until they are finished eating and their teacher asks them to line up. Students may ask for permission to use the bathroom during their lunch period. Students are allowed to talk at a moderate voice level while eating.
Lunch Menu: Student cost is $2.90 per lunch.
