ST. JAMES SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM 

Hot lunch is served daily on a paid-only basis and ordered in advance by the month. Lunch orders must be placed by the stated deadline. If you do not order hot lunch, please send your child in with his/her own lunch.  If your child forgets his/her lunch, an allergy-safe snack is offered, usually Cheerios.  Please review the policies at the bottom of this page.

NOTE: LUNCH ORDERS MUST BE IN BY THE DUE DATE. WE CAN NOT ACCOMMODATE LATE ORDERS & FOLLOW THE ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS ON THE FORM TO SUBMIT YOUR ORDERS.  

PIZZA DAY SECOND SLICE : Students may purchase an additional slice of pizza on Wednesdays and Fridays for $1.75 rather than an entire second lunch at $4. Please indicate a #2 on the Wedneday/Friday that you wish to purchase a second slice.

LUNCH POLICIES AND PRACTICES
  • The price of a single lunch is $4. Lunch order forms are sent home monthly.
  • In order to keep costs down, we order our  our lunches from our vendor a month in advance.  For this reason, it is imperative that you turn your order in by the stated deadline each month in order for your child’s lunch to be included.
  • Check your selections for the entire month and circle the corresponding dates on the bottom menu, tally the total number of lunches ordered and return the upper section with your payment.  The bottom menu is for your own records so you will know when your child/children will need to bring a bag lunch.
  • You must fill-out one menu per child, but you may pay for all your children with one check.
  • Your child’s teacher will receive a spreadsheet showing the students who are having hot lunch in  for the entire month. Each day, the teacher will distribute a generic lunch ticket to those students who ordered, which the student must in turn present to the lunch monitor in the cafeteria.
  • It is not possible to place a same-day “add-on” lunch order.  If you child forgets his/her lunch, you may bring your child’s lunch to school for them.  If not, we will offer them cereal so they will at least have some sort of lunch.
  • When your child is dismissed early or  is sick on the day that he or she ordered lunch, you may call in advance to request that we wrap lunch for him/her and you may pick it up.  Otherwise, you have forfeited the lunch.    There will be no refunds issued for absences, illness or early dismissals.
  • If we have a school cancellation, you will be issued a credit for the lunch that you paid for which may be applied to the next month’s lunch order.
  • Please note – teachers and staff are not permitted, by State law, to heat individual student lunches.
