Cafeteria Ala Carte Sales: Ice Cream

Ice Cream:

We recently received a great deal of feedback from parents about whether we should serve ice cream as an ala carte option in our elementary schools.

In order to look into the feedback and to do further research into the subject, we plan to temporarily suspend the sale of ice cream for elementary students. We will send out a brief survey in January to get more input from parents on this subject.

We will continue to sell our other ala carte options in the meantime. Each of these choices has fewer than 200 calories.
