Lunch Program

St. Mary School students may participate in our hot lunch program. If your child is leaving during the lunch hour a note must be sent to the office.

The charge for hot lunch is as follows:

Students: 4K-4                 $2.65/day               $13.25/wk

                  5-8                    $2.80/day                $14.00/wk

                 Adult                 $3.50/day               $17.50/wk

The monthly menu will be posted in the cafeteria, on our website, in each classroom. The menus are subject to change due to funeral dinners or other unforeseen circumstances.

Our program is offered vs. served. This means we offer 5 food items. The students may choose 3 to 5 of those items. The 5 food items we offer are: a meat/meat alternative, a fruit, a vegetable, a bread/bread alternative and a milk.

Grades 4K-4 must be offered: 1 1/2 oz. meat, 3/4 cup vegetable, 1/2 cup fruit, 1 bread, 1/2 pint milk. Grades 5-8 must be offered: 2 oz. meat, 3/4 cup vegetable, 1/2 cup fruit, 1 bread, 1/2 pint milk. Students must choose 3 food items, but may choose all 5.

Applications for free and reduced lunches may be obtained from the School Office. If eligible for the reduced price lunches, the cost is .40/meal or $2.00/week. These applications will be available by August. If you wish to apply or have any questions, please call Mrs. Raimer at 742-4998. All information is confidential.

If your child wishes to bring cold lunch, milk may be purchased for .25 for a 1/2 pint at lunchtime daily, or $45.00 for the entire semester if they have cold lunch every day. Money for lunch should be put in an envelope with name on it. It may be paid by the week or the month. If you have more than one child, you may send one family envelope thus writing only one check. Lunch money should be sent to school on the first day of the school week or month. Lunches, except in special circumstances, MAY NOT BE CHARGED.

Milk and lunch money may be included on the same check. Please DO NOT include either milk or lunch money on the same check with your tuition or school fees.

Milk and lunch money is a separate account from all other school expenses.

If you have any questions concerning the lunch program, please feel free to call. Parents are always welcome to join the students for lunch. Please call the school office by 10:00 a.m. and let us know, so we are sure to prepare enough of the main entree.
