ESNS: Elementary School Nutrition Services

If you are ordering lunch for your child through this online provider please make sure you have selected the correct teacher for your child’s order. Otherwise, the food will not be delivered to the correct classroom. It is also important that you check the order verification that comes to your email every Sunday morning for the week. This will let you know what has been ordered for your child.

Nutrition for Learning snack program

Our daily snack program is back up and running for all students. Students love this program and many help with keeping tally of the snacks on a daily basis. Distributing and collecting bins from classrooms is a leadership opportunity for students as well. Examples of the healthy snacks that we provide include: cheese, yogurt, apples, whole grain dry cereal, granola bars, raisins, vegetable crackers, and seasonal vegetables. Providing this program to ALL students in our community is important: it reduces the stigma that comes with being hungry at school. We share snack time as a community many times throughout the day; providing access to all students and staff ensures that we see one another as equals. Students are encouraged to take one snack per day. This should not interfere with the snacks that might be coming from home. Please consider allowing your child to access this bin program even if you are able to provide enough food from your home. If you insist on your child not accessing the snack bins in the classroom you will need to request an Opt-out form from your child’s classroom teacher.
