Students may bring lunch from home or purchase a hot lunch from the school cafeteria.
Although students can pay for their Breakfast/Lunch by the day, it is best if meals are paid in advance by the week or month.
Lunch Numbers will be assigned to new students within the first 3 days of attendance at a school site. Students will keep this number until they graduate or move out of the Lake County School district.
School meals can be pre-paid at any time during the school year. The pre-payment will be placed in an account for your child that will track their purchases and pre-payments. Students can access their account by using their lunch number at the register to receive meals. When sending in a payment please be sure you supply the students’ lunch number so the money will go on the correct students account.
Students are to turn in their lunch/breakfast money to their teacher. Teachers then turn in all monies to the Cafeteria manager.
Parents can also pre-pay for their child's lunches/breakfast at:
The school cafeteria cannot lend money or give credit to a student for breakfast or lunch, per Lake County School Board policy number 8.411. However any student that is without money may receive a peanut butter jelly sandwich and milk for a limited time (a cheese sandwich will be made available for children with a peanut allergy).
