    • Students may go through the cafeteria line to get food or bring a lunch from home.
    • Meals are free this year for all students, however treats or extra portions of items will need additional payment.
    • Students will use an ID on a lanyard to scan for lunch and library to avoid touching checkout surfaces
    • If you are dropping off your child's lunch box, please use the cart in the front air lock
    • No lunch visitors will be permitted until further notice


    • Breakfast is availible from 7:30am-7:50am

    • If you want to purchase a treat from the cafeteria line for ALL the students in your child’s classroom as a birthday treat, please contact your child’s teacher for details.

    Payment Options:

    • Money should be loaded onto the students account so that they can just scan their ID badge at lunch without needing to handle money
