Important Update About Charging Meals

The USDA has issued regulations mandating that school districts implement unpaid meal policies by the start of the 2017–18 school year. Please review the updated Board Policy 702 A regarding student lunch account balances (Board Policy 702 A Meal Charges in Spanish702 A Board Policy Meal Charges in Bosnian). This information was also recently sent to all families via postal mail the week of July 24, 2017.

 Important Update About Pork items on menu

    • To help identify pork items on the menu, they will be marked with an asterisk (*).
    • Students will need to sign up for an alternative entrée with their teacher.
    • Associates calling in the lunch count will need to tell the kitchen the total number of alternative entrées needed.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
