Our schools offer healthy meals each day. Starting this school year, we are joining Minnesota’s Free School Meals Program. All students can get one breakfast and one lunch free of charge each day at school.
What’s not free?
Daily Breakfast meal with a fruit or vegetable and milk
Balanced school lunch from the menu with milk
Water or Milk
If your child plans to purchase second entrees, a-la-carte items, or singular beverages, please ensure their student lunch account has a sufficient balance. Families can add funds to student lunch accounts through Skyward Family Access and sign up for low-lunch balances.
Although no application is required to receive this free meal benefit, filling out the Application for Educational Benefits is still important! Your child(ren) may qualify for other reduced fees for Athletics and Activities, Community Education, ACT/AP Testing and more. Your application may also help the school qualify for education funds, discounts, and other meal programs.
Skim Milk Notice (12/13/2023)
The district was notified by Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) (Kemps) that due to a carton shortage, skim milk is temporarily unavailable. This situation has affected several states and is not unique to us.
- Alternative Options: Although skim milk is unavailable, we still offer 1% white milk and skim chocolate milk daily.
- Operational Compliance: Our milk program is operating compliantly as there is a USDA waiver.
- Resolution Timeline: DFA anticipates this issue will be resolved in Q1 2024.
- Dietary Alternatives: Students who need lactose-free or milk alternatives due to dairy issues are unaffected by this outage.
Please contact Food Service Director Nate Huff with any questions or concerns.
