Child Nutrition


The National School Breakfast Program
Breakfast is offered daily in all of our schools.   Students may choose from a variety of breakfast entrees, cereal, fruit, juice and milk to make a complete nutritious breakfast.  Studies prove that students who eat breakfast perform better in the classroom.  We encourage all students to eat with us every morning.

The National School Lunch Program
Students may select a lunch consisting of a protein entree, two fruits and/or vegetables, bread and milk from a wide variety of items offered everyday.  By offering a variety of nutritious choices, students can create their own healthy meal which consists of foods they enjoy.

A La Carte Items
A variety of items are offered in our schools.   Our high schools provide a wide selection of a la carte items including hot and cold sandwiches, ethnic foods and snacks.  Our middle and elementary schools offer the opportunity to purchase a limited number of a la carte items.  These nutritional items are offered in addition to the regular meal at additional cost.  All items offered adhere to the nutritional requirements imposed by USDA.

Our cafeterias plan special events and promotions to encourage students to eat our healthy meals as well as to make mealtime fun.  All cafeterias participate in the National School Lunch Week in October of every year and the National School Breakfast Week in March every year.

Special Diets
Child Nutrition Services will accommodate any student who has a special dietary requirement.  A form requesting this service is available through your child’s cafeteria manager.  You must have specific information provided by a medical doctor or nutritionist.
