2022-2023 Lunch Information at a Glance

Due to the construction project at the school the middle school and high school lunch set up will differ from normal for the first semester of school.  All 6-12 grade students will meet in the high school lobby for their designated meal time.  They will receive a "packaged" hot meal, or can choose a cold lunch option.  Package and cupped fruit and vegetable options will be available to choose as well. All students will need to choose at least the minimum meal components when going through the lunch line.  Students will then go to assigned classrooms to eat their meal.  Students will be served the first 10 minutes of the assigned meal time. During the first semester, while meals are served from the lobby, there will be no option to use a microwave to heat up cold lunch meals.  

The following is a list of breakfast and lunch prices for the 2022-2023 school year.  Payment can be made in the elementary classrooms or the High School Office before school begins or at lunch time. Payments can also be made by credit card or checking account from the school website using our new E Funds payment platform. Choose the information tab, then food service information, and then Pay Lunch Balance option or go to the shortcut on the homepage under the picture gallery. We encourage parents to pay for milk and meals on Mondays, so staff are only handling money/checks one time per week.  This year K-6 cold lunch students will need to pay for their milk for the week on Mondays.  Please log on to your child’s Meal Magic or the pay lunch balance (E Funds) options tab of the website account to check account balances.  It allows the parent/guardian to see when the child is eating and the balance on the account.  Online payments can be made at  <E Funds>
