BACK TO SCHOOL CAFÉ NEWS 2017-2018
We are back in school and ready to serve some yummy food to all of our students!! We are excited to roll out Pizza every Monday! Hopefully after a busy weekend the only worry you will have is…cheese or pepperoni this week?
You will notice we did increase the price of lunches from $2.75 to $3.00 this school year. We have not had an increase in several years but our cost of goods continues to increase and we need to accommodate for those expenses. The other reason is….when we order we are careful to look for the better product being offered and in some cases these items are more expensive. We are not willing to sacrifice the quality of what we are serving our students to save money. We hope you understand and continue to purchase lunches from your Café!
Things to know:
**A La Carte items will be offered during lunch on a first come first serve basis for 4-8th. The item offered is based on inventory we have in stock. A student can use their lunch account, but must have a positive balance of at least $1.50.
- We are offering a mini salad bar A La Carte at least two times a week. Students can choose three toppings and dressing for $1.50. They will come through the lunch line after our main course is served. They must have a positive balance of at least $1.50 to purchase this item. This will be offered based on availability of product and volunteers. We are really excited to offer this and hope if the response is positive we can eventually roll out a full salad bar.
*Doubles will still be available and can be purchased for a $1.50. The student must indicate this with a double check mark or x2 next to their name on the roster, which is located in the classroom. This is only for students in grades 5th- 8th.
*PM snack cart from 8/28-9/30 depending on weather. An adult must be with a student. The snack cart will be at door D and will only be provided for car riders.
Kindergarten pin numbers will be in your information packets at Kindergarten Orienation. Use that 4 digit code to set your child's account up. We will provide an index card with their number for them to bring to lunch until they memorize the pin. The classroom teacher will have the index cards and they stay at school.
We are encouraging all of you to sign up for myschoolaccount.com for this school year. You can still send in payments, preferably on Monday for that week. Set up the balance alert to remind you of your student’s balance. There will not be phone calls or letters sent home to remind you to deposit money. This tool is free and a great way to track activity in the account. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 614-866-6050 x228 or email at email@example.com
We look forward to an awesome year and as always we are still taking suggestions from the students for lunch…they can drop them off in the café anytime.
Welcome Back to School,
