Our lunch program will go back to a paid program. This means you will be billed for lunches. The cost of a student lunch for K-5 will remain the same at $2.90 which includes lunch and milk. The cost of a student lunch for grades 6-7-8 will be $3.00 which includes lunch and milk. If a student would like just a milk or an additional milk the cost remains the same at $0.35 per carton.

If you would like lunch assistance, you will need to complete this application. Even if you have completed this in the past, it needs to be completed every school year. This application is also on our website, and copies are on the window ledge by the school office. Completed forms can be mailed or dropped off at the school or parish office.

A menu for September will be sent home mid to late August. The first day of school is September 1st.
