Will I eat lunch at school?
A balanced and nutritious lunch is served daily in the cafeteria, where, for a minimal fee, students may purchase a plate lunch and/or "a' la Carte" items. In order to encourage sound nutrition, we discourage the purchase of more than one sweet dessert item per child; however, purchase of fruits and salads in addition to the plate lunch is unlimited.
There should be no charging of meals. (Board Policy #AR3542.1) The school system recognizes that students occasionally forget to bring their lunch or the money to purchase a meal. A student, in that case, may request a voucher from the teacher, enabling him/her to receive a vegetable (except French-fries), two rolls, and a ½ pint of milk from the school cafeteria for 50 cents. A copy of the voucher will be sent home for reimbursement for the cost of the meal.
There are free and reduced rate breakfast and lunch programs for those who qualify.
