    Breakfast 

    All breakfasts are FREE for all students!

     

    Elementary Schools:

    We will be providing FREE!!!  Breakfast Bags for any students who want them.  These “Breakfast Bags”  will contain 5 full breakfasts.  This year you will need to “Opt In” for these meals.  A form will be sent home (and is also posted on the website) that needs to be filled out with your Student's info and your info.

    Menus can be found on the Food Services page of the UMASD.org website.

    NO BREAKFAST WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE ELEMENTARY BUILDINGS.

    But, please be sure that students eat breakfast before coming to school, either with the food we provide or home food, so they won’t be hungry during class and unable to concentrate. 

     

    Middle School:

    Students will go to the cafeteria to pick up breakfast and sit and eat it there.  Then go to their classrooms after eating.

    All meals will be served as “Grab and Go’s” which means that all components will be bundled together.

    There will be 2 choices every day and at least one will be vegetarian.

    Menus can be found on the Food Services page of the UMASD.org website.

     

     High School:

    Breakfast will be served in the kitchen from 7-7:35 am and students can eat in the cafeteria.  All meals will be served as “Grab and Go’s” which means that all components will be bundled together.

    There will be 3 choices every day and at least one will be vegetarian.

    Menus can be found on the Food Services page of the UMASD.org website.

     

    Lunch 

    All lunches are FREE for all students!

    The lunch menus are posted on the Food Services page of the website.

    Elementary Schools:

    There will be 2 choices every day at the Elementary Schools. One choice will be vegetarian every day.  Teachers in the classroom ask students in the morning what item they want and send that info to the kitchen so we can prepare meals accordingly.

    There will be 4-5 choices every day at the Middle  School. Signs will be posted to indicate what meals are served from what stations.  Menus can be found on the Food Services page of the UMASD.org website and will also be posted on Sapphire.

    Please Read on for Additional Important Food Service Information…

    The Food Service Department’s primary goal is to provide your child with healthy, attractive, and tasty meals which comply with all state and federal nutritional guidelines and regulations.

    Starting off the day with a good breakfast helps your child stay alert and focused in class which improves academic performance. 

    Monthly menus are posted on the district website and are also posted on each school’s web page and on Sapphire (for Middle and High Schools).

    The UMASD Food Service Department is here to serve the students, so please feel free to contact me anytime with compliments, concerns, questions, or suggestions at 610-205-8804 or pbartlett@umasd.org.

    Have a great 2021-22 school year!
