 Welcome Back!

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!  We are excited to have students back in our buildings five days a week!  All students will receive free Breakfast and free Lunch this year.  If students would like to purchase ice cream or a la carte items money can be taken at any cafeteria register or online at MySchoolBucks (see link below).  

Students will go through the serving line for Lunch and make their selections and then eat in the classroom.  Students will pick up their Breakfast on the way to their classroom by stopping at a Breakfast Kiosk/Cart.  

School Lunch

We will still offer Community meal pick-ups this school year.  Meal pick-ups will be on Monday and Thursday from 10am - 11am at all Amherst schools.  Any child under the age of 18 is welcome to pick up meals.

This school year Child Nutrition staff are dealing with nationwide supply chain disruptions.  If may be necessary to make menu substitutions when a product is not available or not able to be delivered on time.  We are working diligently with our vendors to provide all of our students with their favorite items.  We are thankful for your patience as we work through these challenging times.
