Lunch and Snack Policy

General Guidelines:
We encourage you to overpack your child’s lunch with items that won’t perish if left uneaten.  You should supply food (that does not require heating), drink, and utensils on a daily basis.

During the regular school year, you may also take advantage of our hot lunch program from Choicelunch®Click here for more information and/or create an account.

Special Note: Choicelunch® will not be offered during Summer School 2024.

All children are monitored during snack and lunch, but please call the office if your child has not eaten enough of his/her lunch.  We will more closely monitor what your child brings to school, so that we can more accurately assess what he/she has eaten.

  • No knives
  • No dessert (e.g., candy, cake, or sugared items)
  • No food on a stick
