Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well-being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Free & Reduced Lunch -
30 day carryover from t he Prior Year Students who were on Free & Reduced meal status at the end of the previous school year will carry-over. For the New School Year (2018-2019), this carry-over period ends September 28, 2018, unless a meal application is approved. As per USDA regulations, if your child qualifies for lesser level meal benefits (from free status to reduced-price status to reduced-price/free status to paid status); these changes will take effect 10 days from the date of application approval. If your child qualifies for higher level meal benefits (from paid/reduced-price status to free status or paid status to reduced-price status), these changes will take effect immediately upon application approval.
This allows for students nutritional needs to be met while parents are in the process of reapplying
