Breakfast/Lunch Menu

Children need healthy meals to help them in the learning process and all of our schools offer healthy meals every day. We would like to serve as many children as possible and encourage you to consider applying for free or reduced meals. Below are our meal prices for this year, along with information regarding free or reduced meals.


We strive to provide the highest quality foods and a variety of nutritional options for our students, updating our menus regularly with new and creative ideas. Our staff exchange ideas at our monthly staff meetings and utilize any input from students, teachers, and parents.

It only takes a few moments to fill out and I am available if you need any help filling out the form. Please remember that we cannot approve an incomplete application, so be sure to fill out all required information. Return the completed application to your school office. All information is kept confidential. The great thing is that the benefit lasts through the entire school year.

Here is some more information to help you apply for free or reduced meals:

  • Do I need to fill out an application for each child?
    No, use one Free and Reduced Price School MealsApplication for all students in your household, even if they go to different schools in the District. For example, Susie in 1st grade at Westshire and Bobby in 6th grade at the Middle School would go on oneapplication.
  • Who should I include as members of my household?
    You must include all people living in your household, related or not (such as grandparents, other relatives, or friends). You must also include yourself and all children who live with you.
  • What if my income is not always the same? List the amount that you normally receive. For example, if you normally receive $1,000 each month, but you missed some work last month and only received $900, put down that you receive $1,000 per month.

Our Food Service Team is happy to serve you. Our Food Service Managers are Carol Perkins at Samuel Morey and Pauline Prior at Westshire. Our Food Service Team is completed with Viola Farrar is the Assistant Cook at Rivendell Academy and myself.
