  • Full price lunches are now $1.50 for PK-5 grades and $2.00 for 6-12 grades. But you can apply for discount lunches or free lunches.

  • at the elem. we pay $1.05 for breakfast and $1.80 for lunch and at the middle school it is $1.30 for breakfast and $2.05 for lunch. the high school here charges $2.30 for lunch. I have two who eat lunch at school right now and it cost me quite a bit, next year all 3 kids will eat at school and I am going to have to really budget for it. We also make lunches at home but at the middle school it is harder for my son to take his lunch with everything else he has to carry so he prefers to just buy his lunch.

  • Both of mine are $1.30 but will go up to 1.75 in February to help cover some of the money the state cut in education.

  • Our elementary lunch is $1.95/day full price, $.40 reduced price, or you can get them free if you need it.

  • Elementary - $3.00. My high school son needs $7.00. He always buys more than 1 lunch!

  • Ours is 1.75 for lunch, but we get reduced lunch prices so it's only like .35
