School Lunches & Breakfast
Eating healthy is an important part of the school day. Parents should send a healthy snack with their child every day that will be eaten with the class at a time set by the teacher. The school day is long and children need that extra nutrition. Sending a water bottle is also very handy and avoids needless interruptions going to the drinking fountain. No snacks are available for purchase at school. For healthy snack ideas please click HERE
Breakfast is available through Organic Life Food Service upon arriving at school and will be charged to pushcoin if the child chooses a breakfast. Please talk with your child if you plan for them to eat breakfast at school. The students will eat as class is starting and do not need to arrive early for breakfast. Please do not send a breakfast from home for your child to eat at school, only school-purchased breakfasts are allowed. There is no eating allowed on the school busses.
Lunch times are 20 minutes in length and students may choose from 4 menu items or may bring their own lunch. The teacher will ask children for their lunch choice at the start of the school day, but parents may review the menu with their child at home. Lunches are also charged through pushcoin and are not free to all students as they were last school year.
For lunch/breakfast pricing, application for free/reduced pricing and more, please see the D303Food Services Webpage.
PETS and SCHOOL
We love our pets and young children love them even more! We ask that you refrain from bringing pets onto school property when students are present. If you walk with your pet to pick up or drop off your child, please identify a meeting space off of school property. Thank you for your cooperation.
Transportation Department Reminders
- All kindergarten parents need to be at the bus stop after school or have designated an adult to receive their student at drop off.
