Providing high quality, nutritious choices to students

Our school district provides healthy meals each day. For the 2021-2022 school year, breakfast and lunch will be provided to all students at no cost. However, to qualify for other school benefits, a current Application for Educational Benefits must be completed each year. Apply online via SmartSchoolK12, apply without logging in or creating an account, or learn more in the Meal Assistance tab.

Load Meal Account

In 2021-2022, your child's meal account can be used for á la carte food purchases at school. Breakfast and lunch will be provided free to all students throughout the year.

We use MealViewer, an interactive menu that allows students and families to easily see nutrition (calories, fat, carbohydrates, etc.) and allergy information for meals served at school each day. In addition, families can create free MealViewer profiles for their students to better monitor dietary restrictions, identify food allergies, and more. Contact Colleen Fairbanks with questions about MealViewer.
