Lunch and Recess Information

Lunch Choices

At St. Junipero Serra we believe that a nutritious lunch keeps children healthy and gives them energy to do well in school.

Below are several meal option for our students:

1) Packed lunch brought from home.

2) Pre-order lunch through our lunch service provider, Choice Lunch. To visit Choice Lunch, please go to their website at http://www.choicelunch.com/.

3) On scheduled Thursdays, we have fundraising lunches which currently include In-N-Out. Please click on the IN-N-OUT tab below for more information and to place your orders.

In the morning, please review with your child what the plan is for their lunch.

Bringing Lunch for Your Student
If you are bringing in a lunch for your child, please make sure their first and last name and classroom (e.g. 3B, 7A) is clearly marked on the lunch and place the lunch on the applicable shelf of the lunch cart located in the School Office. In most cases, a child will know by their morning break time that they do not have a lunch at which time they should inform their teacher and ask to call home to see if a lunch could be brought in for them.

Forgotten Lunches

In the morning, please review with your child what the plan is for their lunch. If you are bringing in a lunch for your child, please make sure their first and last name and classroom (e.g. 3B, 7A) is clearly marked on the lunch and place the lunch on the applicable shelf of the lunch cart located in the School Lobby. In most cases, a child will know by their morning break time that they do not have a lunch at which time they should inform their teacher and ask to call home to see if a lunch could be brought in for them.

If your child is without a lunch they should:

1) Go to the School Lobby and check the lunch cart to see if a lunch has been brought in for them. (In the case of Kindergarten students, the teacher’s assistant will check the cart).

2) Go to their applicable (PEB or MEC) servery window to check with the ChoiceLunch to see if their name is on the list for that day. When parents register with ChoiceLunch, they will need to choose an option in the case a lunch is not ordered for a particular day. These options allow the student to get an extra lunch from ChoiceLunch (if there are any remaining) and the parent will be charged. If a family is not registered with ChoiceLunch, or has selected to opt-out of the forgotten lunch program they provide, ChoiceLunch will not be able to give the student a lunch.

3) Go to the Student Store Snackbar located in the MEC servery where we will provide something for them at a cost.

We try to keep a limited supply of Lunchables on hand for this purpose. This service is for emergency purposes only and is not be used as a convenience. We ask for your cooperation in keeping this as intended so we may provide a child with a lunch when it is a legitimate case. A $5.00 Missing Lunch Program Invoice will be issued by our Business Office for each missing lunch and sent home via your family’s next Weekly Envelope. Wait for the invoice and then return your payment as per directions on the invoice. Please do not pay with cash or send cash to school with your child for this.

Please do not hesitate to contact our School Office for further information regarding the lunch program.

Working together as a TEAM, should help prevent any child from going without their lunch!
