Food Service Program - 2013-14 School Year
If you have questions or comments about the lunch program, please contact Anne Simons, Quest Food Service Director at 847-604-7476 or email@example.com.
All students staying for lunch must eat in the lunchroom under supervision. Students may bring their lunch from home or purchase their lunch. The lunch program begins on the first full day of school and is in operation each full day school is in session. Menus are posted online (see links at right under "Student Menus.")
Elementary students may order one of the daily entree selections from the elementary school menu featured monthly, while Deer Path Middle School can select their meal from either their monthly school menu or the "a la carte" line. The hot lunch entree at the elementary schools and the middle school includes one milk selection, and the Fruit & Veggie Cart featuring seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables, low fat Ranch dip, and canned fruit in juice. The cost of a single hot lunch entree is $4.00, and milk is $ .50 (a single hot lunch entree with organic milk is $5.15). A la carte entrees at the middle school vary in price. (Please see the District 67 Price List at right under "Student Menus" for DPM a la carte items and prices.)
Prices, which are subject to change, are dependent upon costs and federal reimbursement, and changes are reported on the district website.
Lake Forest School District 67 and Quest Food Services are pleased to provide our families a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account. This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance through a web site (www.MySchoolBucks.com).
At the elementary schools: the student will continue to make their lunch selection in homeroom each morning. At lunch, your child will simply give his or her name to the cashier and the cashier will view the student’s picture online and debit their account. Any student purchasing lunch or milk must proceed through the lunch line.
At the middle school: the student will swipe their student ID at the lunch line, the cashier will verify the student’s picture and the account will be debited. We are encouraging all middle school students to be responsible with their ID’s, but if one is forgotten or lost, ID numbers and names can be searched on the computerized system to ensure the student has lunch for that day. Replacement ID’s can be issued in the middle school office – the first replacement is free but subsequent ones will cost $5 each.
A Food Service Advisory Council, consisting of parents and District 67 staff, meets regularly to monitor the food service program. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please contact Anne Simons, Food Service Director, 847-604-7476.
Please note that we do not fry any of our foods and most of our breads, tortillas and pizza crusts are whole grain rich as defined by the USDA for School Lunch. Nut products including nut oils are not used due to allergy concerns. The menu follows the guidelines for portion sizes and amounts of grains, proteins, and fats for each age level as suggested by the National School Lunch Program.
The district's "charge" system will be implemented when your student's account is overdrawn. The elementary students are allowed to charge up to three (3) lunches, while middle school students are allowed only one (1) charge. After this allotment, students will not be allowed to charge any further lunches until monies are paid. After three unpaid charges at the elementary level, and one unpaid charge at the middle school level, a cheese sandwich, vegetable, fruit and milk will be offered to the student. You will still be charged the full price of a meal.
If an emergency/snow closing occurs, students will follow the menu for the day they missed when they return to school. For example, if a snow day occurs on a Monday, and students return on Tuesday, they will follow the MONDAY menu. The Tuesday menu will be skipped, and students will follow the posted menu for the rest of the week.
The district has developed procedures for management of food allergies/anaphylaxis. The procedures guide and forms can be accessed by clicking on "Allergy Procedures" from the box at the top right of this page.
District Wellness Policy *
The District 67 Board of Education has adopted a School Wellness Policy (6:50), The policy includes goals for Nutrition Education and Nutrition Promotion, as well as Goals for Physical Activity.
Click here to download the Wellness Implementation Guide.
The District 67 Local Wellness Policy Committee created a Healthful Food and Beverage list to assist you in selecting healthy choices for your child's classroom snacks/celebrations. In creating this list, the Local Wellness Policy Committee also took into consideration the medical needs of students with severe allergies in an effort to keep classroom spaces safe for all children.
* Throughout the school year, there are three (3) times where exceptions may be made to the Policy guidelines for celebrations; Halloween parties, Winter Holiday parties and Valentines Day parties. During this time, food may be provided to students that does not meet the Wellness Guidelines.
