The following meal prices are for the 2014-2015 school year:

  Full-Pay Student Reduced Student Free Student HCDE Employee Visitor

Please be sure that your student has lunch money daily. High school students may not charge meals. For your convenience, you may monitor and manage your student's account through My Payments Plus. You will need to set up an account, for which you will need a student number; this can be found by calling the school office. Monitoring their purchases and account balance is free; however, a nominal fee is charged to add money to their account. Be sure to add money to the correct account:

Meal Account: money added to the meal account can be spent on meals only, and a la carte items will not be allowed to be purchased.

General Account: money in the general account can be spent on meals or a la carte items.

You may put money into both accounts if you wish to restrict how much a la carte your student can spend. Additionally, you may specify for which account you would like the money deposited when sending cash or check.

 


A La Carte

Students in grades K-8 only have access to a la carte items (food & beverages not offered as part of a meal) that have strict dietary requirements including:

  • Calories from Fat: ≤35%
  • Calories from Saturated Fat: ≤10%
  • Sugar by Weight (except fruit): ≤35%
  • Sodium: ≤230 mg
The portion sizes on a la carte items offered to K-8 students are also restricted. For a list of non-meal items and their prices available to elementary & middle schools, please click here*.

For a list of non-meal items and their prices available to high schools^, please click here*.

 

*Not all items are available at every school.

^According to State law, any school that contains K-8 grades can only offer a la carte items approved for K-8 students to their students, even if high school students are also present. For example, a school that services 6-12 grades can only offer a la carte items from the elementary & middle school list.
