Offer vs. Serve
Each cafeteria will participate in offering our menu options to the students versus serving meals to them. Lunch prices are based on a complete meal. When your child is in the lunch line, they will have the opportunity to choose or deny parts of the meal. In order for a meal to be complete they must select at least 3 meal components, with at least 1 component being a fruit or vegetable. Students can always choose to take all 5 components.
Elementary School Menu Example:
Menus and Pricing

As a district, we will make every effort to provide a suitable, and compliant substitution for a food item that your child may have a documented allergy to. For example, it is never OK to substitute fruit juice for white milk if your child has lactose intolerance, according to the USDA. In this situation, we have lactose-free milk in each cafeteria.
ALL allergies must be documented by a physician and submitted to the SCHOOL NURSE, they will then contact the Food Service Department for proper arrangements. Food preferences are not an allowable reason to make substitutions for meals.
