The Nutrition Services Department offers nutritionally balanced, appetizing school meals to students, staff and parents during the school day. Meals are planned to follow high nutritional standards set by the United States Department of Agriculture.
Our Lion Cub Meal, which debuted in August of 2015, is an elementary favorite. The meal includes all components required by USDA including fruit, fresh veggies, cheese and/or yogurt and grains. Over 100,000 Lion Cub meals were served during the 2015/16 school year.
High School students will appreciate the updated, contemporary look of our new kitchen and dining area opening in August 2016. The space is designed to serve students quickly and efficiently to allow them plenty of time to enjoy their meal.
