Hello Families,

February is Black History Month, and we will be serving some new items to our students. Nutritional Services worked with a group of High School students to plan several different menu items. On February 16th we will be serving Jollaf Rice with the Jerk Chicken. Jolllaf Rice is a rice dish from Western Africa and is made from white rice, tomatoes, onions and spices all cooked together. Next on February 23 we will be serving Gumbo with rice. Our gumbo will be made with Thousand Hills Beef Andouille Sausage (from Becker, MN). Gumbo is popular in the Southern United States, especially in Louisiana. Gumbo can be made with a variety of different meats and the High School Students were very excited that we would try this dish. The final request was Collard Greens and those will be served on February 27 or 28, depending on the school. We hope that you will encourage your students to try these menu items and experience some different flavors and cuisines.

If your families, income has changed, you can still apply for Educational Benefits (free/reduced priced meals). The application can be completed online through the Campus Portal at If you do not have Campus Parent Portal access, paper applications can be found at your school's office or on the Nutritional Services Web Page. Please check your students lunch balance, we have quite a few students who have a negative lunch balance. If you are having trouble paying your outstanding lunch balance, please contact Kathy Backstrom at 763-502-5021 to discuss payment options. If your child is bringing a cold lunch and wants a milk, the cost is $0.55, and your child needs to have money in their account.

Interactive menus and pdf menus are posted on the Nutritional Services website. Please note that menus are subject to change due to supply chain and staffing issues. The most current menus are found on using the Titan link on the Nutritional Services web page. If you have any menu questions or concerns, please contact Renee Arbogast at 763-502-5022.

Bar Codes for Student Meals

Middle and High School students will need to have their bar code card, student id, picture of their bar code or the bar code on the Campus Student App at the cashier station.


For the 2022-23 school year all students eligible for transportation MUST request by this form:

If we do not receive a form, your student will not be assigned to a bus. This process is new this year due to the driver shortage. Please submit the form as soon as possible to ensure your student(s) has a bus stop assigned.

Please read the documents below for our updated practices for maintaining a safe and healthy learning environment in Fridley Public Schools for the 2022-2023 school year.
With seasonal flu, RSV, and other respiratory illnesses on the rise, remember to keep your students home when they have a fever of 100 degrees or higher, are throwing up, have diarrhea, or are generally not feeling well. Please teach your kids how and when to wash hands with soap and water, cover their cough, and how and when to use hand sanitizer, to help decrease the spreading of germs.
