The school year is off to a great start.
After listening to concerns about the amount of food offered during the school lunch lines, I have been working with the Food Service staff on a solution. Starting Monday Aug. 29, we will be offering a second serving of the main entrée to each student in grades 6-12 for the cost of $1.00. Any student who wishes to be served the second entrée must sign up in the office by 10:00 each morning. This will give the Food Service staff enough time to prepare the entrée and requested seconds.
If you do not wish your student to have seconds, please talk to them about the added cost to your family and they should not sign up for this ala carte portion of the meal. Free and reduced meals will still be served at the free and reduced levels, but this added second is a payment only option. There are no free or reduced options for the second entrée. Please bring payment if you wish your child to be able to have the choice of ordering a second entrée.
