Payment Options

Students may open a lunch account with the cafeteria so that they do not need to carry money each day. Cash, checks and credit cards are acceptable. The lunch account can be used whenever required and has no expiration date.

Sack Lunches

Students may bring their own lunch.  Please bring your lunch in a sturdy lunch bag and make sure that you label all personal items with your name.  Students may purchase milk or juice from the cafeteria if necessary.

In the event that your child forgets to bring in their lunch bag, please do not take it to your child’s class.  Leave it on the table outside the office, notify office staff that it is there and we will make sure your child gets it.

Parents may also bring a sack lunch and eat in the cafeteria with their children.  Please contact the school office to inquire about joining your child for lunch.
