Student Meal Details

Did you know that the USDA provides parameters on what can qualify as a school lunch? 

Students must take what amounts to three servings out of the five food groups (milk, fruit, vegetable, grain and meat/meat alternative); a serving of fruit/vegetable is required to be one of the three choices. If students choose differently than what is required, the food will be charged at individual pricing rather than the meal price. Similarly, the USDA has requirements on what can qualify as a school breakfast. This document outlines meal requirements.

At BHS and WMS, ala carte food items are available for purchase in addition to the school meal.

Finally, please remember that families interested in applying for free & reduced-price meals must complete an application every school year. Learn more here
