School Lunch Program Rules
For those who want school lunches:
- Lunch menus are sent home on the second or third Monday of the month. Menus must be returned by the date noted. Orders MUST be placed monthly.
- Each lunch selection MUST be circled. If your child will not be purchasing lunch on a certain day, please X the day.
- If a child forgets his/her lunch, a peanut butter/jelly meal will be available.
- PLEASE, do not send cans or bottles of soda, carbonated drinks, or drinks that are high in sugar or caffeine. This is in keeping with codes established by the New York State Health Department.
- Appropriate table manners are expected in our Cafeteria as we view this as our dining room. Students may bring their own lunches from home, however microwaves are NOT available for student use.
We ask that each family follow these rules and keep them posted in a convenient location for your reference.
