    Free Breakfast

    All students in Pre-School – 12th grade will receive free breakfast this year. Adult meals, second meals, and milk are not free.

    Child Nutrition Program

    St. Maries School District participates in the National School Lunch Program, and the Food Services Department serves wholesome breakfasts and lunches every school day. Special nutritional needs or dietary restrictions can be accommodated by making special arrangements with the Food Services Department.  Menus are published monthly and are available from the schools as well as the District Website.  Bag lunches are also available for field trips at regular school lunch prices.  Multiple milk and ala carte items can be purchased for an additional charge. If parents do not want their student to charge for additional food items, they can request a form from the Food Services Department to limit their child’s purchases.  As a member of the National School Lunch Program, the District can receive federal dollars to support any student qualifying for free or reduced breakfast and lunch. One Application qualifies a student for both meals.  Only one Application per family that lists all family members is required. Applications are kept strictly confidential and are available at each school and on the District’s Web site.  A new Application must be completed each year.  Parents should contact Cheri Chaffey, Food Services Program Director, at 208-245-1309 for additional information.
