The cafeteria is open on all school days, including minimum days. Breakfast is offered in the cafeteria each morning starting at 8:00 AM. This year breakfast and lunch are free for all students.  Typically, each student is issued a meal card that will be debited each time the child eats breakfast or lunch. Students who use their cards will receive lunch, even if their lunch accounts have a negative balance and parents are responsible for the cost. Payments may be made in the cafeteria, in the school office, or online (see below in Online Services).
