School meals

There is no charge for free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch. A second full breakfast or lunch for a student is the same price as an adult breakfast and lunch. Only individual meal pricing is listed for an adult breakfast and lunch (weekly, monthly and yearly pricing is not available). Milk is included with all meals, but for additional cartons of milk or if purchased separately, it is an Ala Carte charge of 40 cents each for all eligibility levels.

For questions about your student’s meal account or balance information, please contact the food and nutrition services manager at your student’s school.

Food allergies and special diets

Parents or guardians of a child with a severe food allergy or special diet needs should contact the school nurse. Parents may be asked to have their child’s licensed physician complete a Special Diet Statement and submit it to the school nurse.

The school nurse will share the Special Diet Statement with the school Food and Nutrition Services manager and the district supervisor. The school manager and the parent will meet to complete the Special Nutrition Needs form and agree on a communication plan.

For more information about food allergies and special diets, visit the Allergies page.

Meal PINs

  • Students who are new to the district can obtain their PIN at their school’s orientation session or on the first day of school.
  • Returning students retain the same number as previous years, even if they change schools within the district.

All current pricing and menu options are available on the district's Nutrislice website.
