Cafeteria Information 2023 - 2024
The cafeteria offers a hot breakfast, cereal, pastries, and breakfast bars as a meal in the morning. We also offer two hot lunches each day. Deli sandwiches and PBJ sandwiches(Uncrustables) are also offered. Salads are available in the middle school and high school on certain days.
We have fresh fruit, juices, water, yogurt, string cheese, nuts, granola bars, baked/reduced-fat chips, cookies, and ice cream. These items are not part of the free/reduced price meal program. All items comply with the new federal Smart Snacks regulations. If you do not want your child to purchase extra items or snacks, you may complete a form for us to flag the account at the cashier.
No outside food or drink is allowed in the cafeteria during mealtimes, except what an immediate family member brings or sends for their own child(ren). All cafeteria visitors MUST check in at the front office and receive a visitor’s badge.
The new state and federal regulations regarding foods on campus dictate that individual campus wellness plans govern the rules for each school. As those plans are finalized by the SHAC (School Health Advisory Council), you will receive additional information. If you are interested in serving on the School Health Advisory Council at your campus, please contact the school principal or Dr. Alex Salazar at 361-855-0092 ext 1124.

We do not accept payments of any kind on the serving line. They must be put in an envelope with student’s name and student ID and deposited to the locked payment boxes.
