Hot Lunch Program

The "December Hot Lunch Menu" deadline to order is November 29, 2017 .

We have added to the December menu Beefatoni , (ground beef with rigatoni noodles, red sauce or plain). This menu option will include french bread, fresh fruit, fresh vegetable, and a light dessert.

  • Please keep in mind when ordering and selecting your menu items for the month you must complete the ordering process.

  • Be sure that you have added enough "CREDITS" to cover the cost of your menu choices..

  • Be sure to "CHECK OUT" the order and "PAY INVOICE" and finally click on "PROCEED". Only when you receive an invoice marked as "PAID" will the order be confirmed.

  • Not completing the process will result in an "UNCONFIRMED ORDER". All unconfirmed orders that pass the ordering DEADLINE DATE OF NOV. 29th, will not process, which will result in your child not receiving the anticipated lunch item.

The online Hot Lunch Program is only for Kindergarten through 8th grade. For those of you that have not signed up for "Hot Lunch", you can do so at

Dear Families and Staff,

We would like to extend a BIG thank you to everyone for helping with the food drive this past week! We were so humbled by your gracious hearts and are thankful we can give back to our community in this fashion!

In this short one week period we managed to collect over 600 items!!!

Thank you again,
