How does my child order lunch?
In order to ensure that there are enough meals for all students who need them, it is important to place lunch orders ahead of time.
Parents may order lunches for their child(ren) each Thursday for the following week by filling out the School Lunch Google Form. Parents will be able to select which days their child(ren) require meals, select meat or vegetarian meal preferences (with the exception of the first week of school, during which a vegetarian option will not be available), and indicate any allergies.
How do I pay for my child(ren)’s lunch?
Each Monday, a PayPal invoice will be sent to parents who ordered and received lunches the previous week. Parents will have seven (7) days to pay the invoice. The preferred method of payment is online. Parents may also pay by check, submitting the invoice and check to the UC front office.
Parents will be unable to order lunches if invoices are not paid on time.
What is the cost of a school lunch?
The cost is $4.00.
What if my child must unexpectedly purchase a school lunch?
There will be a limited amount of extra meals available at each campus to accommodate unanticipated needs. Priority will go to students who have ordered a meal.
