For the  2016-2017  School years the Nutrition program will be utilizing the CEP (Community Eligibility Provision).  What this means is that students will be able to enjoy a complete Breakfast and Lunch for Free.  

While the cafeteria is offering these Free meals Students may still have the option to buy items A la Carte.  Parents will want to have funds available for their students who wish to participate in the A la Carte program as the cafeteria does not allow charging.  

Parents please be aware that only a COMPLETE breakfast or Lunch is Free.  Students who do not take the whole meal may be charged separately for the items they choose.  


Examples of a Complete Meal
