Lunch prices and info below are for a typical school year.
Lunches are nut-free and alternate entrees and salad options are also available daily. The Cafeteria also has a nut-free table available for students. Access the monthly elementary school lunch menu here.

Breakfast is also available to students. Breakfast is served starting at 7:30 and students are monitored by a member of the food service team. Breakfasts cost $1.25.

Lunches (including milk) cost $3.00. To purchase milk alone is $.60. Free and reduced price lunch applications are available online and in the school office. You can prepay for lunches online or with a check:

  1. Make the check out to “Town of Arlington – Food Service” and put your child’s name and class in the Memo line.
  2. The check can be in whatever multiple of $3.00 you want (standard is $60 for 20 lunches). The cafeteria staff will keep a running total and send a note home when you run low. They will debit only when your child buys lunch, so you can send in lunch from home whenever you want.
  3. Put the check in an envelope marked “Food Services” and send it into school in your child’s folder.
