After School Activities Meals

The mission of Food and Nutrition Services is to provide high quality, nutritionally sound, food service programs that support student learning.

Every day we offer healthy and delicious breakfasts and lunches to help our students be successful throughout the day, but what about after school activities? Many of our students are involved in after school activities and may not be able to have dinner until late in the day. Now available students may pre-order and pre-pay for an easy grab and go meal or snack. Options include a sub sandwich on whole grain, a classic favorite PB&J on whole grain or a protein packed soft pretzel pack. There will also be other grab and go a la carte items available for purchase.

Meal order forms will be available in the High School Main Office, kitchen and available for download here. Orders must be placed to either the High School office or kitchen by 10:30 a.m. and will be available for pick up between 1:45-3:15 p.m. All meals must be pre-ordered and pre-paid; charging will not be allowed.

Any meal not picked up will be held through breakfast of the next day, after that it will be discarded and the account will still be charged.
