Cafeteria Policies - 2019

School Lunch Program

The National School Lunch Program is governed by federal (United States Department of Agriculture) and state (Department of Elementary and Secondary Education) regulations, and all menus must meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The menu planning system required by the NSLP is designed to provide children with approximately one-third of the key nutrients and calories they need according to the Recommended Dietary Allowances.

Our lunch/breakfast is served as Offer vs Serve which means we offer choices that are broken into components, consisting of milk, fruits, vegetables, protein and grains. The student must choose at least three components, and a fruit or vegetable must be on the tray. He/she can also take all five components.
