Lunch

Menu

Ordering

All school lunch meals must be pre-ordered 2 days in advance. The website is www.myschoolaccount.com. Menus are posted monthly. If a meal is not ordered, the student will receive a cheese sandwich, fruit and veggie of the day and milk. The cost is $3.95 for paid meals, $0.40 for reduced meals and $0 for free meals. These charges will be applied to the student’s account. Once an order is placed, it can not be cancelled. Please check field trips before ordering ahead.

Please check your child’s account regularly to review the balance.

Payments

For your convenience, we are now accepting cash or check payments to be applied to your child’s online lunch account. Payments must be made in person to Jill in Food Service 7am-3pm. It will take 24-48 hours for the payment to process onto your account, so please plan accordingly. Please do not send money in with your child.

Field Trips

Field trip lunches are available to order on the field trip forms provided by your child’s teacher. Lunches have been altered to meet the nutritional standards of the National School Lunch Program. The cost is $4.00 for paid meals, $0.40 for reduced meals and $0 for free meals. Additional snacks and beverages are available for an additional charge.

Snacks

Frozen yogurt is available for $2 on the first Friday of the month and Popcorn is available for $1 on the last Friday of the month. Any additional snacks will be listed on the monthly menu.

Snacks will be available at both campuses during lunch. Sunchips, pretzels, granola bars, fresh fruit, milk and juice will be available to purchase for $0.50.

Nurse's Corner

Once a week, take a peek! Please check your child for lice on a regular basis. Hillsborough County has a no-nit policy which is adhered to by our school. If your child has lice, please consult your physician for treatment product of choice. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of removing ALL nits to stop the breeding and reproduction cycle of lice.
