Food Services

Did you know that school meals are often safer and healthier than meals brought from home? The Food Services Department enhances the lives of our more than 4,700 students by providing hot and cold breakfast and lunch options each day in a friendly and courteous atmosphere. New nutrition standards mean tasty meals with more whole grains, zero trans fats, a large variety of fruits and vegetables, less fat and lower sodium.

Paying for Meals

  • Elementary school lunches: $2.85
  • Middle school lunches: $3.05
  • High school tiered lunches: $3.10, $3.50 and $3.75
  • Breakfasts: $1.25 (elementary), $1.50 (middle school), $2.10 (high school)

POINT-OF-SALE OPTION: PREPAY YOUR CHILD’S MEAL ACCOUNT.


  • Deposit money into your child’s meal account to pay for breakfast or lunch. Send a check or cash into school with your child or pay online through www.myschoolbucks.com. Money brought in for lunch will be deposited in its entirety into your child’s lunch account. Please list your child’s full name on the envelope. If sending a check, please make it out to “CSD Food Services Department” and include your child’s full name and student ID# in the memo section.
  • The student will simply enter his or her designated pin number into the pin pad at the cafeteria register when making a purchase. The amount of the meal is then automatically withdrawn from the account.
  • Connect-Ed messages will be sent biweekly to update you if your child’s account is low or falls into the negative. If you use www.myschoolbucks.com, you can set low balance reminders and also monitor what your child purchases. Middle school and high school student balances may also be checked via PowerSchool. Additionally, you may call the school cafeteria at any time to request a balance or update.
  • At the end of the school year, all remaining balances will be carried over to the next year, even if your child moves to another school in the District. If your child is graduating or leaving the District, you will receive a full refund.

What's included in a meal

All meal offerings include five components: protein, grain, fruit, vegetable and 8 oz. low-fat or fat-free milk. As per federal regulations, students must choose a combination of three components, one of which must be a fruit or vegetable. All five components may be taken at no extra charge. If three components are not chosen, inclusive of a fruit or vegetable, a la carte pricing will apply.

Test your knowledge: An example of a complete meal is cheeseburger, apple slices, side salad and milk. Based on student selections, are the following considered meals?

  • A student chooses a cheeseburger and apple slices, but declines the side salad and milk. Yes, this is a meal. The three components are protein (burger), grain (bun) and apples (fruit.) Milk and side salad could be taken but are not required if the student does not desire them.
  • A student chooses a cheeseburger with water. No, this is not a meal. There are only two components, protein and grain, and a fruit or vegetable was not chosen.
Cashiers will make every effort to encourage students to choose a fruit or vegetable with their meal; please encourage your child at home as well.

A la carte offerings

Any beverage other than 8 oz milk will be charged as an a la carte price. (We sell a variety of juices and water.) If you have a child who is allergic to milk, please send a doctor's note, and we can make reasonable accommodations for them. Any snack item (soft pretzels, ice cream, etc.) are not included with the meal and are a la carte items only.

Occasionally foods that are normally considered an a la carte item may be listed on the menu for the day. If it is listed on the menu, then it is included as part of that day's meal. For example, at the high school, baked French fries are an a la carte item. However, on occasion, we might menu a cheeseburger with baked French fries. In that case, since it is listed on the menu, it is included as part of the meal.
