How to Order Lunch for Your Student

Lunch orders are taken from each classroom every day. Your student can choose what they would like using the menu provided.

Late Lunch Orders

Your student can let the office or home room teacher know what they would like to eat for the day and the information will be passed to the kitchen.

Currently March 2022, all food items are provided at no cost.

Vending Machine

Our vending machine is not available at this time.

Our school has one vending machine located in the lobby. It accepts cash, and change can be made for $1, $5, and even $10 bills (changeis returned in dollar coins).

The vending machine is also set up so that student lunch accounts may be used to make purchases. Pin numbers will be assigned to any student with parental permission. This is extremely useful when your child stays after school for extracurricular activities and no one is available in the kitchen for snacks.

Students must have permission to use the vending machine. Please fill out the vending machine permission slip below and return it to the main office.
