Parents can pre-pay for their child's lunches by bringing a check or cash to the school office or creating an account online at www.mySchoolBucks ($1.95 bank fee). You will need a credit card and your child's student number to enroll online (call the school office if you don't know this information). Parents can monitor their child’s lunch account through the service for free. Students access their accounts by entering their student number into a pin-pad at school when buying lunch.
Food and beverages sold or served at school meet the nutrition recommendations of the U.S. Dietary Guidelines and are served by qualified child nutrition professionals. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
The National School Lunch Program is a federally-funded program that assists schools and other agencies in providing lunches to children at reasonable prices. In addition to financial assistance, the program provides donated commodity foods to help reduce lunch program costs. The United States Department of Agriculture is responsible for overseeing the program nationally. In California, the program is administered by the California Department of Education’s Nutrition Services Division.
