Peabody School’s Food Program is now Online!
To order a lunch for your child, please visit the school’s website and scroll to the bottom. Click on Additional Resources and then Lunch Forms From there, simply answer the questions about each offering. If you do not wish to order an item it will move to the next day. Please keep in mind that when choosing how many of an item you want in dumplings, noodles, and pizza, you will have to choose zero if you want one choice, but not the other. For example, if you want to order two cheese slices but zero pepperoni, choose two (2) and (0) from the drop down menu, respectively. 

If you wish to pay online, an invoice will be emailed to you within 48 hours that contains a link to make a secure payment via Square. If you prefer to pay via cash or check, make this selection on the page, print your email confirmation and include it with your payment. These payments can be left in the dropbox in the front office.

Our Lunch Program will start on Monday, September 11th . Please submit your orders by Wednesday, September 6th. Payment is due immediately. Payments not received by Friday may not be processed.

*Please note there are some price changes on the dumplings, noodles, and subs due to vendor price increases. 

Monday - Bodo’s Bagels (includes fruit, milk or water)
Tuesday - Marco & Luca Dumplings or Noodles
Wednesday - Edy’s Outshine or Frozen Yogurt
Thursday - Jersey Mike’s Subs (includes fruit)
Friday - Domino’s Pizza
Arrival/Dismissal Reminders
Thanks to everyone for your cooperation as we all learn (and re-learn!) the arrival and dismissal procedures at Peabody! Here are a few reminders to make things easier, and  please share this information with all caregivers who drop-off/pick-up your children :

1) For dismissal,  every car must have a placard displayed with the student's last name . Please make a photocopy of the one you were sent this summer, and distribute to all caregivers as needed.

2) For dismissal, please do NOT enter the Peabody parking lot before 2:45 p.m.  

3) For safety reasons, all students should  enter and exit  their vehicles  from behind the passenger's (not the driver's) seat onto the front curb

4) If you have to get out of your car for any reason during the the arrival/dismissal process, please pull around to the "buckle up" spots in the front circle and get out there, not while still in the car line.

Thank you for helping us keep your children safe!
