All students eat school lunch or bring a balanced nutritious home lunch daily. Meals are to be eaten in the designated areas of the cafeteria. No food is to be taken out of the cafeteria.
All menus include a half-pint of milk
Students with milk related allergies will be given water instead of milk with their lunch. The school health aide will need a letter from your child's physician explaining the cause for an exception. Parents may provide a water bottle/thermos for their child in lieu of juice.
