A family account will be set up for lunch/milk money to be placed in. Hot lunches will be $3.25 which includes milk. The cost of milk only is $.50. The account will be debited as the students choose hot lunch or milk. Please keep a minimum of $12.00 in the account at all times. If several children are using the same family account, the balance diminishes very quickly. Should the account fall below the $12.00 minimum, parents will be notified.
In addition, St. Gabriel School participates in the federal free and reduced lunch program. Forms are available in the school office and provided in the summer packet. Please read them carefully to understand the qualifications. Participation in the program benefits families as well as the cafeteria program. The state requires that milk be taken with a hot lunch. A doctor’s notice is required if the child is allergic to milk. If the student has a sack lunch an opportunity to buy milk will exist.
In keeping with the Diocesan Wellness Program, students will not be allowed to bring soft drinks to drink with his/her lunch. A juice drink or water is acceptable. Parents are encouraged to send healthy lunches for students instead of fast food with soft drinks to school for their children. After lunch is concluded, all students will join in prayer.
