50 cent Fridays for 5th Graders

The Student Nutrition Department is excited to announce this new cafeteria dining opportunity for all district 5th grade students as they prepare to enter middle school.

Beginning Friday, April 1, and continuing until the end of the school year, all 5th grade students will be eligible to participate in our "50 Cent Fridays" a la carte snack program. During their normal lunch period, students will be allowed to select from a limited number of items for sale in addition to their hot lunch or home lunch. The attached document provides additional details on how the program will work, the items that may be for sale and how to opt out if you do not wish for your student to participate. Students may bring cash/coins or you may add additional funds to your student's lunch account.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your student's building kitchen manager or lead cashier. Thank you for the opportunity to serve your family!
