MEAL OPTIONS / DAILY OFFERINGS

Breakfast program

Mornings are rushed and we know your student doesn’t always have time to eat breakfast at home. We’ve got it covered with hot, fresh and delicious breakfast options that will jumpstart your student’s day. Does your student need a grab-and-go option? We have bagels, yogurt parfaits, cereal bars and fruit.

Lunch Program

When your student has good nutrition, they will perform better in school, and feel happier and be healthier. The school lunch program includes a range of offerings to ensure that your student has access to the nutritious meals they need to lead healthy and productive lives.

Student achievement starts with nutrition. Well-nourished students perform better in the classroom. Your child’s school cafeteria provides several options for both breakfast and lunch, so you are sure to find something that will keep your child fueled throughout the day. A school lunch consists of their choice of one entree, unlimited Garden Bar (fresh fruits and vegetables) and the choice of flavored non-fat,1% or skim milk. A School Breakfast consists of a student’s choice of one entree, unlimited fruit, and a choice of 1% or non-fat milk. All menus are posted on the district website and Elementary School menus are also available at the front office. 

Parents can deposit money and view a student’s account history online at mymealtime.com. To add your child to your online account, please have your child’s student ID number. This can be obtained from your child’s school. There is a link to   pay online on the school district’s website along with the menus. Money, in the form of cash or check, may be sent with your student to the school cafeteria and deposited into your child’s account. Parents must keep track of their child’s account. 

While meal charging generally is not allowed, the district follows current Oregon Law, HB 3454, that specifies that when a student requests a meal during meal service, they shall receive a meal regardless of the ability to pay for meals.  The cost and account balances of received meals are the responsibility of the parent or guardian and will follow students from year to year.  Due to this, the district is unable to establish a charging limit for all accounts.  Charging limits can be set by parents or guardians only.  This can be done in writing and submitted to the School or the Nutrition Services Department.  The District allows for the prepayment or payment of meals through mymealtime.com or the school.  

Negative balances will be communicated to the parent or guardian via letter home, a phone call or email.  We understand families have busy schedules and the District wants to make every effort to communicate with families about the status of their students' meal account balance.  However,  the District reserves the right to pursue collection of debt if debt goes unattended to.  

Parents may apply at any time during the school year for Free or Reduced meals. Contact your school main office for an application or apply online from the district website.
