Lunch

 

Students may pack their own lunches or purchase lunch.  Every student is issued an id card which can be used for “charging” their lunches so they do not need to carry cash each day.  Parents can add money to their lunch account at any time.  Lunch statements are sent home once a month indicating the current balance on the account.  Negative lunch balances indicate payment is due.

Lunchroom Warmups

Students may bring items to be warmed up for their lunches. For K – 4 students, the items are sent to the dining room in the morning, and they are “warmed up” prior to the child’s lunch period. For Gr 5-8 students, they may warm up their own items.

Please Note: lunchroom warmups should be items we just “warm up”, and they should come in their own microwaveable containers (we do not provide bowls, plates, etc). The intent is to heat up leftovers or items which are better eaten warm. Students may not bring in items which need to be “cooked”. These take far too much time and often have multiple steps. There is insufficient time for lunchroom personnel to “cook” all the items while prepping for each lunch period, as well. By the time they get everything heated, the first items are no longer warm! For the older students, the lunch periods are already short and too many students want to cook meals in that short time period leaving little to no time to eat. Therefore,  we ask students not to bring in items which need to be cooked (such as macaroni and cheese cups, ramen noodles, microwaveable meals, popcorn, etc). We understand these items are convenient to send, however, we are too limited in our time and space to continue to prepare these meals. We appreciate your understanding.

**An Important Note about Lunchroom Warmups

The Ohio Board of Health does not permit us to put any items brought in from home in our refrigerators. Therefore, any items brought up to the dining room in the morning cannot be refrigerated here at school. We can place them in the kitchen until they are warmed up, but nothing more. For older students who keep their items with them, they can have cold packs in their lunch boxes. For the younger students, it is best to send in warmup items that will not need refrigeration if you have concerns about the items you are sending staying out until lunchtime. Due to time constraints, it is not possible for K-4 students to keep the warmups in their lunch boxes with cold packs and wait to bring them to the dining room at lunchtime. Also, due to space constraints, it is not possible for them all to send their entire lunch boxes to the dining room.
