Lunch

 

All students have a 45-minute supervised lunch period. Children generally spend about 15 minutes of this time eating lunch and the remainder in supervised recreation. Students who are not finished with lunch in the 15 minute period are given additional time to finish as needed.

LUNCH SCHEDULE: Kinder-1st gr: 11:45am-12:30pm

                                    2nd-3rd gr: 12:15pm-1:00pm

                                    4th-5th gr: 12:45pm-1:30pm 

Students may bring a lunch from home or purchase a school lunch. Cafeteria menus are available at www.hbcsd.k12.ca.us then click on district services, food services. Milk is available for purchase by all students. The hot lunch order is submitted to the District’s kitchen by 9:30 A.M. each day. If your child will be late to school but still needs a hot lunch, please notify the office prior to 9:30 A. M. so he/she can be included in the order total. If any child has forgotten his/her lunch or lost lunch money, he/she may phone home.

Money can be deposited in an online account for purchasing lunches. Please refer to the District website at www.hbcsd.k12.ca.us then click on district services, food services, prepayment option then online account. Cash or checks can also be sent to the school office to be deposited into an automated account for your student’s lunch. Make checks payable to HBCSD and print your child’s name and room # in the memo section of the check. 

If you bring a lunch to your student after the school day begins please leave it on the rolling cart outside the office with his/her name on it. Please do not go to the classrooms to deliver lunches. Children may not borrow or take lunches from other children. No food is to be shared between students.

On occasion, parents may choose to take their child “out” to lunch, but must follow the standard sign-out/sign-in procedure at the office. Students are expected to be returned to class on time. Parents may not eat lunch with students in the MPR or the outside lunch area. 

FREE/REDUCED LUNCH

Applications for free or reduced price lunches are available in the school office or online at www.hbcsd.k12.ca.us then click district services, food services, meal apps (at the bottom of the page). Even if you prefer not to have your student receive a free/reduced lunch we encourage all parents to complete the application. Additional funding may be available to our school based on the number of students who qualify for free/reduced lunch.
