In the past few years, our cafeteria service has transitioned from a cost center to a profit center.  Overall, improvements have been realized through technology enhancements, staffing refinements, budgetary discipline and oversite that continually focuses on operational improvements and cost savings for the district. 
Our website statistics indicate a high volume of viewers on our menu page.  Our goal is to keep lunch menus as current as possible, but occasionally commodities or special opportunities make it necessary to change a menu at the last minute. 

Another website parents frequent is our payments online feature - making it simple to transfer funds and check fund balances of student lunch accounts.  Accounts with low balances receive automated phone calls asking parents to review balances and transfer funds as needed.

Hope to see you in the lunch line at your child's school very soon!
