  • Free and Reduced Lunch:
    Students that qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch Program should follow the normal lunch procedures in the cafeteria.
    To receive credit for the free and reduced lunch, students need to take the full meal offering, “the special” for that day. This would include an entrée, a side, and a fruit / veggie.
    Students ARE permitted to substitute the entrée with either a grinder sub, a wrap, or a salad and still meet qualifications.
    Our lunch staff is well-trained on helping students navigate this, and they are happy to assist each student if there are questions.
    When the student checks out, they will give the cashier their student ID number and the meal will be credited accordingly.
    If students wish to make additional purchases of lunch items, they can do so at the same time, and those items will simply be charged to the lunch account at check out.
