Lunches

Lunches are free for everyone through May.


Lunches must be preordered since they are catered into GAA. Watch for lunch order forms around the 15th of each month for the following month.


Free/Reduced lunch applications are available to complete anytime here. We recommend completing an application so if NSLP/USDA decides to continue with the P-EBT program they rolled out last year for families.


Contact Ms. Laura with questions. 480-325-6100

Sign up for School Messenger- It's the same code for all districts and schools. ie: if you have students in another school you'll receive messages from both schools on the same text number. Ours will start off with "GAA Families" or "GAA Mustangs"- something like that so you know it's from us 📱😉


We also recommend saving our school phone number in your phone so you know it's us calling 480-325-6100
