Exciting changes to the Food Program

28 Aug 2018 12:31 PM | Anonymous

Our breakfast and lunch program has had some exciting changes! Students will no longer be charged for breakfast and/or lunch. The business office is working on refunding families with positive balances. We will have snack bar sales for families that choose to take advantage of that program. We also are excited to collaborate with the greenhouse program!

Breakfast will be available as a Grab and Go service. EMS students who elect to have breakfast will notify their homeroom teacher. High School students will notify their first period teacher. Any student tardy past 8:15 will need to give Clara or Dawn their order.

Students can get lunch any day they would like. They simply need to go in the lunch line and choose components of the lunch they would like to eat/try. As always, we will be promoting healthy eating and making smart choices.

Some students have food allergies, food sensitivities and restrictions. Our alternative lunches are listed on our menu.

Our Food Services Director, Lindsay, is certified in Allergen Awareness. Our food service staff is certified in food safety. Available for review, will be a binder with food ingredients and nutrition labels for quick access.

Food Service Snack Bar Policy 2018-2019: All students will have an opportunity to buy snack bar items daily, in addition to being offered a breakfast and lunch. All proceeds will go towards student activities for the LPS community. Snack bar sales will be cash only. No exceptions.

E/MS snacks will include items such as:

  • Water bottles
  • Bags of chips/snacks/cookies
  • All items will cost $1.00 each

High School snacks will include items such as:

  • Water bottles/sparkling water
  • Bags of chips/snacks/cookies
  • Student-made cookies/muffins/baked goods
  • Second helpings (i.e. pizza, macaroni and cheese, turkey wraps, salads)

All items will cost either $1.00 or $2.00 based on size/item

All items are subject to change.

We look forward to serving our students and working with families to create a healthy and enjoyable dining experience!
