Hot Lunch Days

Please go over the lunch choices with your child and fill out an online order form before Back to School Night.  Order forms are required for every child, even if they are not buying hot lunch. This helps us ensure that no orders are missing. Each hot lunch offers additional items that may be ordered for kids with bigger appetites. Keep in mind you are ordering for the whole year.   Orders cannot be changed after registration. No refunds will be given, including for school cancellations or student absences.

Allergies: Please note your child’s food allergies on the order form. Oreos are provided to students with milk, egg, or nut allergies, instead of bakery cookies.
