Cafeteria Payments

2021-2022 School Year

*All complete breakfasts and lunches are free for all enrolled students for the 2021-22 school year at all buildings.*

This does not include a la carte purchases.  Students who wish to purchase a la carte items such as second meals, snacks, chips, cookies, and/or a beverage to go with a packed lunch, must have funds in their student meal account.  NO cash will be accepted at the cafeteria registers this year
