Breakfast & Lunch Info

Currently, there is no cost for meals through December, as part of a U.S. Department of Agriculture school district reimbursement program. Parents are encouraged to still apply for free and reduced-priced meals, which helps with school funding (apply on the Free and Reduced-Priced Meals website).

At school during Phase 3, students can choose to eat school meals or bring their lunch from home.

On their remote education days, students can pick up meals at CLPE (3511 W County Road 54G). PSD Virtual students can get meals at these sites too. 

Sack meals are available to students (any child 18 or younger) 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday (on scheduled school days). 
People must wear face coverings and maintain social distancing at meal sites.
Students may get meals at any location regardless of the school they attend or where they live.


Lunch prices for the 2020-2021 school year are:
Lunch Full Price:  $3.20
Lunch Reduced Price:  No Charge
Breakfast Full Price:  $1.45
Breakfast Reduced Price:  No Charge

Nutritious lunches and many meal choices are provided daily at all schools. CLP also provides breakfast. Prices vary at secondary schools for a la carte items.  Lunch menus are posted on the PSD website at Child Nutrition.  

Lunch Payment Policy

In order to speed the lunch lines and enhance the "dining experience" for our students during lunch, we are requesting that students pay money into their school account in the morning in the cafeteria (the office cannot take money for school meals), instead of making change during busy lunch time. You can also add money to your child's meal account through the SchoolPay website.  We are also requesting that if students do wish to pay cash for lunch that they have exact change available.

Parents and students may pay for meals in several ways.

  • Children may bring money (check or cash) to school and pay in the cafeteria during breakfast or lunch. 
  • Money may be put on their student account, which will be debited when your child gets their meal.
  • Checks for your child’s account should be made out to the school and may be turned into the cafeteria staff. 
  • Parents may also use their credit card to pay for meals online. Click the button below. 

Lunch program available to qualifying families
Applications for the federal free and reduced-price school lunch program were mailed home to all heads of households in late July/early August. Students participating in the program during the previous school year may be automatically enrolled in the program for the first 30 days of school. Parents must submit a new family application each school year and are required to complete only one application per household. The application may be returned to a school or to the Food Service Office. Identity of students participating is kept strictly confidential.

Eligible families should complete and return the form even if they do not plan to participate in the lunch program. Students who qualify for the federal free and reduced-price school lunch program are also exempt from other fees and charges. A letter of eligibility for free and reduced-price meals will be sent to the parents/guardians of qualifying students. An information release form will be included with the eligibility letter. Complete the information release form and return it to your school office. Information: (970) 490-3557.
