If your child forgets his/her lunch, bring it to the office with your child's name and room number clearly marked. Students will be notified and may pick up their lunch in the office at lunchtime, without interrupting instructional time.
- Hot lunches may be purchased daily either by adding money to student's Zangle account or by sending in cash/check. Menus are sent home monthly or you may view/download them here. Students bringing lunches from home may purchase milk from the cafeteria.
Free/Reduced Lunch Program
- If you apply for free or reduced price lunches, applications must be submitted and approved each school year. Students bringing lunches from home may purchase milk from the cafeteria.
- On an emergency basis, children may charge a lunch if they forget their lunch or lunch money. Since only a small amount of money is available to cover charged lunches, repayment is expected the following school day.
