News & Announcements


Bids for general contracting. Please see flier for more details.


 On Friday, October 9, 2020, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) extended nationwide waivers to help schools continue to provide meals to children during the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. Per USDA guidelines, a breakfast meal consists of 3 components (fruit, grain, and milk), a student must take all 3 components in order for the breakfast to be free. A lunch meal consists of 5 components (protein, grain, fruit, vegetable, and milk), a student must take at least 3 components to constitute a free meal and one of the components must be a fruit or vegetable.

Students are allowed one free breakfast and one free lunch per day; if a student takes a second serving they will be charged for a meal as well as any ala carte items. The process for obtaining a meal in each building remains relatively the same; the "sale" will still be recorded on the point of sale system, however your student's account will not be charged. Any ala carte purchases however require that the student have funds on their Meal Magic account.
