Ordering Lunch

Elementary Schools:  At lunch, we offer one hot entrée and two cold entrees daily.  We strongly encourage parents/guardians to keep the colored menu copy available at home to review with your child/ren so they know which menu option they would like to order.  Students are responsible for ordering lunch daily and must raise their hand when the lunch count is taken in their homeroom during morning attendance. 

Middle School: Students pick up their lunch when they go through the lunch line.  We offer several entrée options daily.  Students scan the bar code on the back of their student ID at the register to access their lunch account.  Ala Carte items are available for CMS students to purchase during lunch, prices vary from $0.45 - $1.25. 

 

Loan Lunch Policy

Elementary Schools: Students that do not have enough money for a meal will be “loaned” the amount that is short.  The amount of money loaned will be charged to the student’s lunch account and the account will be negative.   A note will be sent home on days “loan meals” are given.  An email will also be generated by the lunch account system to notify parents of negative balances.  Parents are responsible for uncollected balances.  Unpaid balances will carry over from year to year. 

Middle School:   Students with a negative balance will not be allowed to purchase ala carte.
