Meal Prices 2016-17

Federal regulation requires that students be offered five food components comprising the lunch meal. Students may choose three, four or five lunch items based on their preferences. A student is required to include at least 1/2 cup fruit or vegetable as one of their components. Students will be offered four food components at breakfast and must choose at least three. Federal regulations require meals to be priced as a complete unit and students must pay the full price even if they did not choose the complete meal.

Staff / Adult / Visitor / Second Meal Prices

Parents, guardians and other family members may eat with students during their meal time. All visitors are required to sign in at the school office. Staff meals, visitor meals and second student meals are priced higher because Child Nutrition Services does not receive any federal or state reimbursement for those meals, as we do for a student’s first meal.

Milk Prices 2016-17

Mealtimes

Milk is included in the price of breakfast and lunch. Students who take an extra milk at meals will be charged $0.50 per carton.

Milk Break Program

Students in grades K-5 may have the opportunity to drink milk during the morning or afternoon break for a cost of $0.50 a day. The classroom teacher determines if the class will participate in the milk break program on an annual basis. The milk program is not part of the educational benefits eligibility, so all students are welcome to participate as long as there is money deposited into their meal account to cover the cost. The milk break program is recorded on each student’s account on the Monday following the week before. For example if you see a charge for “3 milk breaks” on your student’s account, that indicates that your child participated in milk break on three days the prior week.

Elementary Healthy Snack Cart

Students at all the elementary schools will have the opportunity to sign up to receive a healthy snack every school day for a total cost of $65 a year. It is a way to offer students and families the opportunity to select fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products and other nutritionally sound choices for a minimal price to encourage students to make good eating decisions for optimal health. The program is completely an optional choice for all families, and is not part of the educational benefits application that provides school meal benefits to families who qualify.
