For Parents

UPDATE for School Year 2021-22: In accordance with a nationwide waiver from the USDA, our school meals will be provided at NO COST to all students durign the 2021-22 school year. If you wish to order lunch or breakfast for your child, you must place an order each month OR complete the Automatic Ordering Form. Ordering will close two weeks prior to the first of each month. This is to allow our vendor enough time to plan and prepare enough meals. While meals are free to all students this year, we ask that all households complete the 2021-22 Application for Educational Benefits to help keep our School Nutrition Program going strong!
