Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!

We're thrilled to announce that all students eat FREE in 21-22! The USDA recently announced that flexibility has been extended for all students to eat free in the upcoming school year. This includes breakfast and lunch when students are in session. Please note that this only includes a full meal. Drinks (milk, juice) to accompany a home lunch are considered a la carte items and cost $0.55 each. Students must have sufficient funds in their accounts to purchase these items. Additional la carte items will also be available for sale at the middle and high school levels.

Our team is hard at work creating new recipes and making plans to return favorite items to our menus this school year. To see the most up-to-date menu, please visit our online menu at

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our district office staff. Thank you for the opportunity to continue to serve your family!
