Meal Services

The 21st Century Preparatory School serves breakfast and lunch under the National School Lunch Program.  Breakfast is available daily in the cafeteria from 7:15 a.m. until 7:50 a.m.  Students not participating in the school lunch program should bring a bag lunch from home.  Parents/guardians should not send or bring fast food to eat for breakfast or lunch. 

In order for students to eat, parents must keep a balance on the family lunch account. Meal account balances must be paid in full before the first day of the new school year.  Deposits may be made at the front desk by cash or check, and should be brought in an envelope labeled LUNCH MONEY with the student’s name, room number, and the amount to the school secretary.  Parents should keep at least $15.00 in their family’s lunch account.  Each time a student eats breakfast and/or lunch, the account is debited.

PLEASE BE ADVISED:  In cases where funds are unavailable meals will not be provided.  You will be notified by school messenger if your family’s lunch account runs low.  Students can bring cash for same day meals. 

To apply for free or reduced price meals, households must fill out the Free/Reduced Lunch Application and return it to the school office.  This application is to be filled out prior to the start of new school year.  The information provided on the application will be used for the purpose of determining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year by the school’s official.  Applications are accepted throughout the school year.  Families who may qualify for the National School Lunch Program and do not complete the application will be responsible to pay full cost of each meal your child eats.  Free breakfast and lunch includes one meal and one milk.  Anything extra your child takes will be charged to their account.
