Sharing a meal together is a sign of friendship and acceptance. As members of St. Mary's School family, the students eat their lunch together in the school cafeteria. Students must obey the lunchroom supervisor.
A satisfying and healthy hot lunch program is provided for each child. A government policy concerning free and reduced lunches is explained in a letter to the parents each Fall. Lunch tickets are purchased at the school office. There is no limit on the number of tickets which can be purchased at one time. However, the minimum ticket available is for five (5) lunches. Each child eating a hot lunch is required to have a lunch ticket which is punched at the time of eating. No money is collected for lunches during the lunch period.
Students who do not purchase a hot lunch may bring their lunch from home and eat in the lunchroom facilities. Milk tickets are available to those not eating hot lunch. All lunch bags or boxes are to be marked with the child's name. If a lunch is brought to school after classes have started, it should be left in the office.

For students bringing a cold lunch: If there is something in your child's lunch that requires a spoon or fork, please pack one in the lunch. Unfortunately, our cafeteria does not have extras.
The cooks are offering samples: If your child is not having hot lunch he/she can try the entrée to see if they would like it next time it is served.
