Using our online menus, you can easily view and print information about what is on the school menu for breakfast and lunch each day. You can see an image and description for food items, as well as nutrition and allergen information.
When we are considering adding new items to the menu, we provide samples for students and request their feedback. We also pay close attention to the menu items that are most popular with students versus those that produce a lot of waste. We are continually changing the menu to meet the needs of our students.
Nutrition Services is committed to providing a nutritious meal for district children each and every day. For parents, the program offers a convenient method of providing a nutritionally balanced lunch at the lowest possible price. For schools, the program enhances children's learning abilities by contributing to their physical and mental well-being. Studies have shown that children whose nutritional needs are met have fewer attendance and discipline problems and are more attentive in class.
School meals meet strict nutritional guidelines which are set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). School meals involve the choice of two entrees at elementary, four at middle school, and high school students have three to five entree choices available each day. A variety of fresh and canned fruits and vegetables, fresh whole wheat dinner rolls, and 1% or fat free white or chocolate milk are available daily. In addition, we highlight a different fruit or vegetable each month through our Harvest of the Month program.
Food safety is a primary concern for us. We have implemented a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) Program throughout the district to reduce the chance of a food-borne illness event. Temperatures of all food products are monitored throughout receiving, production, and service. All of our meats are pre-cooked in order to avoid food-borne illnesses through cross-contamination from raw meat.
Parents are Welcome
We invite you to come and try our meals for yourself! Parents are always welcome! We are proud of our program and our hard-working employees, and we encourage you to eat with your child. As your child sees you modeling what a healthy school meal can look like they may be more inclined to try a new fruit or vegetable. We hope to see you soon!
