Welcome to the Kit Carson Union Elementary School Cafeteria!
Our schools’ weekly menus are carefully planned to meet nutrition guidelines set by the USDA. Kit Carson has an extensive Wellness Policy in place that guides healthy food offerings. Besides serving a healthy breakfast and lunch, we also offer a food bar every cafeteria meal, featuring a variety of fresh produce and other healthy foods.
Kit Carson Union School District requires a positive balance for all meals served. Money may be deposited into a student’s meal program account. Envelopes for pre-payments are in the office. You can also add money to your students meal account by paying online at MySchoolBucks.com.
Kit Carson Union Elementary School District participates in the State Free and Reduced Price Meal Program. Applications are sent home with students the first week of school (or upon registration). You must reapply for this program each school year. A student’s needy meal status remains “full pay” until a fully completed needy meal application has been received and processed by Kit Carson Union Elementary School District Food Services Supervisor. Please make sure that you fill out the free/reduced meal application. If there are any questions, please call the Food Services Supervisor at 582-2843, ext. 125 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. or leave a message at any time.
Note: Each student has access to ONE milk with their Hot or Cold lunch. To purchase an EXTRA milk the student must have a positive account balance or cash on hand.
If your child has a food allergy that may result in a severe, life threatening reaction, please provide written certification by your child’s physician detailing the condition and needs. Written certification must be renewed annually or when a change occurs. Meal accommodations can be made.
BRINGING FOOD FROM OUTSIDE
State and Federal laws prohibit bringing homemade food to be served to students other than your own. Sharing it with other students is not allowed.
Parents may bring purchased, labeled food items for the three class parties during the year. Complaints may be made to local and regional legislators. Thank you for your understanding.
CAFETERIA RULES (Also see STUDENT BEHAVIORAL EXPECTATIONS)
Meals must be eaten in the school cafeteria or other designated areas when approved by school personnel. Students may not share or exchange food. Students shall maintain appropriate cafeteria behavior, use moderate voice levels, sit properly and clean up their area after eating.
