School Lunch

This year, all students are entitled to a free school lunch. A school lunch menu is available on our school and District website. Please note the following information:


1. Each student must receive a full lunch. Choosing only certain items is not permitted.


2. Only 1 lunch is served to each child.


3. If your child has a food allergy, we encourage you to carefully review the Sodexo online menu. If you have any questions regarding the items and/or ingredients please contact Sodexo before allowing your child to receive the lunch. We are currently NOT utilizing the PIN system which previously has alerted the Sodexo workers of individual student allergies.


It has been brought to our attention that there are times when the school lunch menu changes. Unfortunately, these changes are often due to supply and/ or delivery issues. We ask that you send your child to school with an extra healthy snack in the event they do not like or want to eat the new item(s) that may appear on the menu.


If you have any concerns or questions related to our school lunches, please contact Sodexo Food Services. Sodexo Food Director, Rocio Johnson can be reached at 732.462. 8400 x8870 or X8871

Water Bottles

We encourage all students to bring extra water bottles to school. At this time, we are not utilizing our communal water fountains so bringing extra water bottles to school help make our students comfortable through snack time, lunch, recess, and physical education. Water bottles are not provided by the school. Thank you!

Social Media Alert

We have been made aware that various social media platforms such as TikTok have posted monthly "challenges" which involve students engaging in inappropriate behaviors in school such as acts of vandalism. If your child has access to any social media platforms, we ask that you engage your child in a conversation about making good decisions in and out of school. Thank you for supporting your child as many of them are exploring social media platforms for the first time.
