We didn't get any info yet. I forgot to sign up on line last year (they changed the system) now we don't have my DS schedule and all his friends do. It's driving me crazy. i wamt to know if he got what he signed up for and if I need to budget for anything else??
Lunch went up from $1.25 to $2.20. If students want a second lunch, it is $4.00. Prices are the same regardless of portion size - the lower grades get less food per serving, which at times is not enough to satisfy even their little appetites.
I'm hoping DS10's school lunch program stays the same price, which is $50 per month. He eats a whole lot of food for $50 per month, plus they teach him valuable life skills while in the kitchen. I also send a box of cereal to school with him every other week because he eats six times a day.
DS5's lunch costs will go up because I'll have to add more to the grocery budget for him. He'll get a nice simple lunch made from home: sandwich, drink, cheese cubes/crackers and a dessert (maybe some homemade muffins or brownies or something). I bought his lunch bag and drink container today, along with some Ziploc containers for ease.
