School meals are delicious, nutritious, and convenient
Since 1946, the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) has made it possible for schools to serve lunches designed to meet the nutritional needs of children who qualify. The NSLP is a federally-assisted meal program that provides low-cost or free lunches to children. The School Breakfast Program provides a nutritious morning meal. These two programs are recognized as one of the most beneficial of the federal nutrition programs. Participation in the program has been shown to improve learning and performance on tests as well as to help students be more focused in the morning
All RE-3J Schools participate in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs, except for Cardinal Community Academy (CCA).
If your student has a food allergy, which has been documented by a physician, please advise both the kitchen manager and the school nurse of the details of the allergy. The kitchen manager will enter the allergy information into the computer, thus informing the cashier of the allergy. If your student comes through the lunch line with an item containing that allergenic food, he/she will be advised to return the item and choose something else. However, it is still the responsibility of the parent or guardian to make sure the student is aware of the allergy and knows what foods to avoid. The Food Services office will gladly answer any questions you might have about the foods that are offered.
Students are responsible for keeping their personalized ID with them in the cafeteria to ensure proper meal charging with our computerized meal credit system. You can add money to these accounts by check, cash, or online payments. Checks should be made payable to Weld RE3J School District. Online payments can be made with credit card, debit card, or checking account. Money may be refunded at a parent or guardian’s request. Prepayment ahead of time helps students have more time to enjoy their lunch and not hold up the line. Funds may be used to purchase meals if paid, second entrees, additional drinks, and a la carte snacks. A la carte account purchasing is limited to students with positive account balances.
Our mission is to serve every student a healthy meal. If a students account is negative and they choose to go through the line, they will never be refused or given an alternative option. Negative balances are handled between the school district and the parent.
A la carte foods are available for purchase in addition to the school meal. A la carte items vary with each school but can include fresh fruit, yogurt, milk, juice, cookies, fruit snacks, and a second main dish. The price for a la carte items is the same for adults and for students, including those students eligible for free and reduced-price meals. A la carte items can be paid for with cash or from your student’s meal account.
Parents or guardians can decide if they want their student to use his/her meal account for a la carte items. Parents or guardians can limit the days of the week that the student may purchase additional items (the day of the week must be specified), set a dollar amount that the student cannot exceed each day, or prevent the purchase of any additional items at all. To set limits on your student’s account, contact the kitchen manager at your student’s school.
To contact your child's cafeteria, for questions about the meal program, please call the kitchen managers from 7 am-2 pm
