Currently, St. Francis de Sales School participates in the Community Eligibility Option provision under the National School Lunch Program. Under this program, all children in SFDS will receive a lunch at NO charge, EXCEPT for Extras $1.25, regardless of income. Extras cost-$1.25
This program expires at the end of the 2018-2019 school year.
Breakfast will be provided again this year at no cost to students beginning on the first day of school. Studies have shown that when you miss breakfast your metabolic rate slows down and causes you to become hungry and have less energy throughout your day.
IMPORTANT CHANGE: Due to new federal guidelines, we are no longer allowed to let students have Pizza Parties, cookies or cupcakes during lunch for birthdays/celebrations. This also includes fast food, i.e. McDonalds, Skyline, Subway, etc.
If you wish for your child to have a birthday treat to share with their classmates, it must be served in the classroom. You must check with your child’s teacher to make arrangements and see what type of treat is acceptable.
Note to Parents: Teachers and Staff cannot and will not heat up students packed lunches. We have a strict time schedule for serving lunches and eating lunch. It is not possible to accommodate students who bring food that must be warmed up for lunch. Please be advised that if you send your students with a lunch that needs to be warmed up, it will not be warmed up. Thank you for your understanding.
Also any parents bringing in food for birthday celebrations, etc. cannot keep food in our kitchen or the kitchen stove and warmer. This is a Health Code violation and it interrupts the preparation of lunch. Thank You!
