Children may bring their lunch or they may eat a Type A hot lunch prepared in the school kitchen. First Lutheran School can provide reduced price or free meals for qualifying children served under the National School Lunch or Breakfast Program. Applications and information are available in the school office. In accordance with Federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.
Lunch and breakfast should be pre-purchased in the school office. Lunches and breakfasts are accessible through Fast Direct and are tracked separately. If your child eats a school lunch on a regular basis we recommend a $50 deposit to start the year. In addition, extra milk and snacks are sold in the lunchroom for cash. These items cannot be charged or prepaid. Parents are invited to visit the lunchroom for any meal. Adult costs are $3.00 for lunch and $1.75 for breakfast. Adults may not use their child's prepaid meals.
Breakfast will be served from 7:50 a.m.-8:10 a.m. Students wishing to eat breakfast must be in the cafeteria by 8:05. Students will remain in the cafeteria until 8:10 and must go to their classroom by 8:20. Adult supervision will be provided.
FAST FOOD LUNCHES AND POP ARE NOT PERMITTED IN THE LUNCHROOM BY STUDENTS OR VISITING PARENTS. If students are taken out to eat lunch, any remaining items left over should not be brought into the school.
As part of the health movement in our state, First Lutheran School joins the State Department of Education in stressing the need for healthy kids. Please see that your child comes to school with a good, nutritional snack. We discourage sending sweet treats with your child for snack and encourage to send "brain food"...fruit, cheese, vegetables, and complex grains. It is important that you and your child communicate about lunches and snacks so that your child does not waste food and is able to have a good nutritious snack to help sustain concentration during the school day. If your child is throwing food away or bringing snacks home at the end of the day, perhaps you should consider changing the foods you send.
It is the parents' responsibility to make sure that children come to school properly nourished and ready to learn. Children may bring their lunches from home or buy them at school. The district provides a nutritional hot lunch program.
