Lunch Account and Menu




Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) has stated that funds have been allocated to continue to provide school meals at no cost to all students for as long as possible, but that funding will not last the entire school year. Please note that supplemental snack items are not covered by the CSDE funding. Parents should ensure their lunch account (i.e. My School Bucks, see below for more information) has a balance to cover any additional food your child may purchase.


In order for you to ease the transition back to our pre-COVID free and reduced price meal benefits (if this applies) once the current program ends, we recommend that you apply now. You only need to complete one copy for the whole family. Simply print and return the completed application to your school's office. For more information or if you have questions, including details on the cost of lunch and regular menus, visit the Food Services’ webpage, or contact your school’s administration. 


Lunch options for your children at school:

A number of meal options are available every day, plus one hot lunch option that changes daily. Click the "Lunch Menu" button below to see the current month's daily hot lunch options. Meals that are regularly available are typically listed at the bottom of the monthly menu.

The school strives to provide a variety of appealing and nutritious foods. You can read more about Food Services provided by the district here
