Welcome to our Child Nutrition Services page! Good nutrition is of utmost importance for our students. A healthy, well-balanced meal can help our students focus and work to their potential. Here you will find information about how to pay for your student's meals as well as some other helpful nutritional information.
Please take a moment to fill out our survey.
In order to ensure there are enough meals please complete your meal order via the daily lunch count:
Daily Lunch Count Order: Lunch count is taken each day in your child's first period class by 8:45 a.m. There is no sign up sheet or binder. Please instruct your child to participate in the lunch count if they are buying school lunch for the day.
Please pay for meals in advance by one of the following methods:
Students may charge meals if there is no money in their child nutrition account. The charge limit is $3.25 per family. Once the family's account has reached a balance of ($3.25), the student may no longer charge any meals. If a student is without the ability to charge a meal, we will offer the student an alternate meal.
The charge policy is put in place for your convenience as well as to limit food waste. As in, if a student signs up for lunch that day, we put that meal into our lunch count, but when the student goes through the line and there are no funds to pay, we prefer not to throw the meal away. Thus, we accommodate with the ($3.25) charge policy. However, if the student attempts to exceed the charge limit, the student will receive the alternate meal, not the catered school meal.
The alternate meal is a package of cheese or peanut butter crackers and a choice of 1% unflavored or non fat flavored milk. The student may utilize the alternate meal only if their child nutrition account has reached the charge limit. The alternate meal is a courtesy of UME Preparatory Academy Inc. and shall be treated as such. Please be advised of the following:
