SUMMER MENUS and Nutritional Information
KINDERGARTEN MEALS FOR 2015-16 SCHOOL YEAR
ALL new students are required to have an application on file to determine eligibility for free/reduced meals. Your student will be classified as a paid student, if an application is not received by Child Nutrition Services. Students may purchase meals on a daily basis or arrange for pre-paid meals. Pre-paid meals will be credited as they are used; notices are sent home when a student’s account reaches a negative balance of $5.00 or more. Student balances may be viewed through this Child Nutrition Services Website.
Elementary student lunches are $2.25 and breakfast is free to all students. Checks are made out to “BUSD Cafeteria” and can be given to the cafeteria cashier or brought to the Child Nutrition Services Office. Please list student’s name and PIN# in remarks on your check. You may obtain this information on this website page. Receipts will be sent home upon request.
Eligible students will receive free meals if the household income meets the guidelines for National School Lunch and Breakfast programs. One application per household is required.
Beginning mid July 2015 meal applications will be available at the school sites, Educational Support Facility, Central Enrollment office and the Child Nutrition Services office for the 2015-16 school year. Return your completed meal application to any school cafeteria or the Child Nutrition Service office. A new application is required every new school year for every household in order to continue benefits.
