AHS lunch staff prides itself in providing balanced meals for their students including a variety of entrees, fruits and vegetables, and whole grain breads. We utilize the “offer vs. serve” system, whereas a student may choose items for their meal from several different options. Menus are posted in the cafeteria, as well as in the daily announcements and on the web-site.
A lunch typically consists of one entrée, and up to three choices of side dishes, along with a carton of milk. Our school lunch price is $3.25/meal with Ala Carte snack, and beverage items also offered at additional cost.
Breakfast is offered daily from 7:15-7:45am. A student breakfast costs $1.75. Students are encouraged to partake of a good breakfast before hitting the books. Numerous studies have proven students do better in school when they eat breakfast daily.
Cash or check may be sent to school with your student (payments can be made in the cafeteria before school starts), or you may make a payment online through the AHS website “online payment” link. Please be sure to label it as a “Meal Payment” in the description box to ensure proper credit to your child’s account. Online payments received by 10am daily will be posted to the student account that day prior to lunch. Students access their meal account by entering their student ID as a PIN at the time of purchase.
If a parent wishes to keep tabs on their student’s spending by checking their account balance, they may do so by registering with the website www.ezschoolpay.com You will need your student’s name and ID number (this can be found on his/her schedule or report card) to activate an account at the website.
Students are notified verbally when they have $12.00 or less remaining in their meal accounts and are not allowed to take their balance below zero. If a student runs short of funds to purchase a meal, they will receive a standard lunch that day only, and the $3.25 will be deducted from the next deposit made.
If you or your student has questions concerning the school lunch program, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We Look Forward to Serving You!
