Dear Parents,

Students in grades 1-12 will be making their lunch purchases in the dining hall. All items will still be fully prepackaged, but the students will have the opportunity to select what they want each day, rather than making that decision the week before. There will be several adults on hand to help the younger students with their purchases.

This means that 1-12 families WILL NOT place online lunch orders.  Additionally, no cash sales will be permitted, so please be sure there are funds loaded to your student’s account if they will be buying. 

Please refer to the Dining Hall FAQ’s below for assistance in loading funds. If you have any other questions, please reach out to Victor Hamilton ( or Jennifer Tacker (

PK2-K WILL STILL PLACE THEIR LUNCH ORDER THROUGH SCHOOL LUNCH CHOICE. Orders must be placed by Friday at 8:00 p.m. each week prior.
