SCHOOL LUNCH/CAFETERIA INFORMATION
For School Year 2021-2022 meals will be available at no cost to students and no application is necessary. However, if you think you may qualify for the Free/Reduced Meal program, filling out an application has additional benefits, if you qualify. See below.
Families are encouraged to complete a 2021-2022 meal application. This qualification extends to other district and state benefits and helps ensure funding for our classrooms.
Free and Reduced Meals: If you feel that your family may qualify for the Free or Reduced Lunch and Breakfast Program, please fill out an application. The Eligibility Guidelines and Meal Application are available online at www.murrietaschoolnutrition.com. Applications can be completed any time during the school year. Only one application per family is needed. Be certain that you list all children enrolled in the district. Free and reduced meal applications must be renewed annually, benefits will carryover 30 days into the next school year. Paper applications are available in the school office, cafeteria, and District Support Center.

Two Ways to Pre-Pay: We highly encourage pre-payment to accounts to keep the lines moving quickly during lunch and eliminate the risk of your child losing his/her money during the school day.

Snacks:Each class has a snack period at the beginning of the morning recess (early afternoon for PM kindergarten). Snacks are eaten at the outdoor picnic tables in the shade. Younger students especially benefit from a nutritious snack.Please avoid soft drinks, sugary snacks, candy or other "junk food". Fruit, half a sandwich and crunchy vegetables are especially good energy boosters.
