School breakfast is served from 7:50 to 8:15 every day that there are morning classes.  School lunch is served every day that school is in session with the following schedule:  Kindergarten is from 11:35 to 11:55, 1st grade is from 11:40 to 12:00, 2nd grade is from 11:45 to 12:05, 3rd grade is from 11:50 to 12:10, 4th, 5th and 6th grades are from 12:20 to 12:40, grades 9-12 from 11:16 to 11:41, and grades 7-8 from 12:09 to 12:31.

The price of breakfast is $1.75 for students K-12.  Lunch prices are $2.90 for grades K-6 and $3.30 for grades 7-12.  Reduced prices are $.30 for breakfast and $.40 for lunch grades K-12.  All students may have a second lunch item at the cost of $1.00.  During breakfast, any student (including those receiving free or reduced benefits) that re-types their number will be charged full price for their second breakfast.  No thirds are available for breakfast or lunch.

Our meal program is a PRE PAY program and it is the responsibility of each family to maintain a positive balance in their account while the children are attending school.  You can see your balance any time on the Campus Parent Portal site.  Contact Mr. Parry 983-5741 ext. 9 or if you aren’t already set up with Campus.  You will still receive balance notifications via automated phone/email.  If your balance is negative, you will get daily notifications.  To avoid this, please submit a payment to Erin in the Business Office.

The Arlington School District No. 38-1 Board of Education has established a meal charge policy (see attached) on dealing with delinquent school lunch bills.  The policy became effective in July 2017, and only allows a negative balance of fifty dollars per family before replacing normal school meals with an alternate meal of a sandwich and a carton of milk.  Parents will have the option to pay cash on a daily basis for their child’s meals when the family account is at the maximum negative amount.  Parents will be notified by School Reach that the child/children will be denied normal meals in the lunchroom unless the bill is paid in full.
