From the Cafeteria

Tuesday, September 22


On Tuesday, September 22 students will enjoy local produce for lunch.   Here are the day's offerings for students in the lunch room on Harvest Day:
  • Shepherd's Pie with Spear's mashed potato
  • Steamed Spear's green beans
  • Bailey's Orchard Macintosh apples
  • Spear's farm fresh carrot sticks
  • Wild Maine blueberry muffins with cinnamon topping 
At this time of year we want to remind families about the Free and Reduced Lunch Program at NCS: If your income falls within certain guidelines, your child(ren) may be eligible for free and reduced meals.   Even if your student never eats lunch at school, qualifying for this program could help our school in other ways.   The number of applications that are returned and approved can affect how much funding the school gets to help students meet academic benchmarks, including materials like books and computers.

All applications are confidential.   The resulting lunch status is reflected in your student's electronic account and meals are charged accordingly.  If you have qualified for free or reduced meals in the past, please fill out this form again this year.   We must update the information yearly.

If a child qualifies for free and reduced priced lunches, he or she qualifies for free breakfasts as well. Because nutrition plays a very important role in the learning process and student success, we want to help your child eat healthy meals at school.
