Breakfast & Lunch Info

School breakfast and lunch are available to all students on a daily basis. Monthly menus are available on the district Web site [from the homepage, look on the right side for the link to “lunch menus”]. Meal prices are determined during the summer and announced at the opening of school.

Cafeteria Information

Students may purchase a hot lunch, milk and/or snacks or bring their own lunch from home. Students will be asked for their student lunch ID number when making any purchases. Students with money on account may also use their cards to charge complete lunches and snacks. Online banking for meal payments is available at More information about how to use this optional service is on the district’s Web site and is included in the back-to-school packets that parents receive every August.

Students are expected to take turns in line and behave in an orderly, respectful and responsible manner at the cafeteria tables. Litter must be disposed of in the appropriate receptacles and trays returned to the kitchen. Failure to comply with cafeteria expectations may result in detention or Restricted Study Hall during a lunch period, or in extreme situations, suspension. Theft in the cafeteria will result in immediate referral to the dean.

Food and beverages are to remain in the cafeteria. Infractions will result in confiscation. Failure to comply will be considered insubordination. A student may be assigned to Restricted Study Hall during his/her lunch period.

Free & Reduced-Price Meals

The district participates in the Federal and State Free and Reduced-Price Lunch Program. Students may be eligible for a free or reduced-price lunch if their families meet federal income guidelines. Detailed information, including eligibility criteria, is sent home to the parents of every BC student at the beginning of each year. More information can be found on the district’s Web site and by calling the Food Services Department at 439-8885.
