Our breakfasts are offered from 8 am - 10 am. Breakfast always includes fresh fruit, whole grains, protein, and milk.


At lunch we offer complete meals (which qualify for free or reduced pricing) and some extras, which are charged to all students at full price. Extra milk and extra juice are both available for $0.40 each. Our all-you-can-eat salad and fruit bars are available with the purchase of a full meal. There is a "salad bar only" option for students who want to eat just from the salad bar. They may fill up one paper boat. We encourage students to try as many things from the salad bar as they'd like. All items are charged to the student's meal account.

Lunch times are assigned by mentor teacher. Please check your student's schedule to find out when they eat.


The after-school snack is served in STEMRec at 4:30pm. Students can participate if they're going home or staying at school. Snacks vary in daily offerings, but options may include a whole grain, fruit, vegetable, or protein. Students choose 2 of the options.
