We are pleased to inform you that there are new federal school nutrition standards.
These new standards help ensure that school meals are healthy, well-balanced and provide students with all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. School meals meet strict guidelines on age-appropriate portion sizes, calorie limits, saturated fat, and sodium limits. School meals also offer whole grains and a variety of healthy vegetable and fruit offerings (students must select one fruit or vegetable with lunch), lean protein, and fat free or 1% milk. Now is a great time to encourage your students to choose school lunch!
The 2012-2013 Application for Free and Reduced Price School Lunch Meals and attachments is now available by clicking on the link below. A new application must be submitted to our office prior to October 1, 2012.
You can click on the following link to watch a short presentation on how the school lunch line runs. It is entitled Welcome to School Lunch
