Special events are held in cafeteria several times a year. Look for the dates on the menu.

Jell-O / Pudding Day(s) are days set aside to add that little extra to a purchased lunch with no extra charge to student. ( All Schools )

Ice Cream Friday is a special event that we hold every Friday. Students have the opportunity to purchase ice cream on this day only. ( Central only ) All other schools offer ice cream every day.

A la carte items are open to students in 1st grade through 12th grade. If you would like to put limits on your students account, send in a written notice to the cafeteria. Please be specific. Notices that contain “one snack per week” are not possible to enforce; please specify which day you would like your child to be allowed to purchase a la carte items.

Payments: checks are preferred with students pin # on the memo line, cash needs to be put in a sealed envelope with students name and PIN # on outside of envelope. Credit card payments will be taken through the website at www.MySchoolBucks.com and payments will be posted the day after information is taken. A convenience fee does apply for website payments. You can view your student’s last 30 days of transactions at this website, even if you don’t use the site to add funds to their account.

Wellness Wednesday takes place once a month. Look for it on the menu. All students will have the opportunity to sample new healthy recipes and receive nutritional information handouts. This is a fun educational event that we encourage all students to participate. Please encourage your students to participate in this event as well. ( Central and Rommelt )

Taking Nutrition Global is done at the High School level every other month. Your child will have the opportunity to sample unique and tasty culinary creations inspired by recipes from around the world. We will offer samples to taste before going through the lunch line were they will be able to purchase that item for their lunch if they choose.

At all three schools we are doing a recipe of the month. This item will be labeled on the menu. This is just our way of introducing new foods and find new item that the children like so we can start offering them more.

There will be no breakfast program on 2 hour delay days.

At anytime you have a question, please contact FSD by phone or e-mail.

We’re looking forward to serving your students.
