School meals are healthy meals. Our meals are planned to encourage children to choose a variety of foods to meet the Recommended Daily Dietary Allowances for school age students. Entrees, side dishes of fruits, salads, vegetables and milk choices are offered to help students best meet their recommended nutrient levels especially for vitamins A, C, calcium, protein and iron.
Good eating habits and physical activity are essential to the health of our children and families. Parents and family members remain the greatest influence on a child's eating habits. The behaviors children see most often at home are the ones they will most likely adopt for themselves. Parents and adults need to be good role models.
The school nutrition personnel are an important ally in helping students select healthful meal choices. However, if a student were to purchase lunch everyday during the entire school year it would only be 15% of their total meal consumption annually.
We do offer elementary students a "Great Grab & Go Fun Bag Lunch" with a variety of food options, when students are away from school during lunch. The cost of the special lunch is the same as our regular lunch. For your convenience students can use their debit card or pay in cash. For more information contact your student's teacher or food service @ 248.341.5881.
Special lunches for field trips will be available in the near future for middle and high school students.
The funds remain in your child's account and will be available for the first day of school. A negative balance will also remain on account and will be required to be paid. For those students transferring from one school to another within the district, the money will be available in the new school.
