School Lunch Choice is an easy to use, on-line lunch ordering program that we will be piloting for the rest of the school year. Lunch menus will be posted a month at a time. All lunch orders are due no later than the 20th of the month prior. The new lunch menu for the following month will be posted on the 21st of the month prior. For example, all January lunch orders are due no later than December 20th. The February menu will then be available as of December 21st. You will have until January 20th to order February lunches.

Our School Lunch Choice portal is accessible by visiting our Lunch Program page and clicking on the green “Online Lunch Ordering” button near the bottom of the page. Before you can order lunches, you must enroll as a new customer. Each family only has to set up one account regardless of the number of children you will be ordering lunch for. Please follow the steps below to enroll as a new customer and to order lunches.


Step-by-Step Instructions
