  • Hillside Student Meals

    Breakfast

    Breakfast is served each day from 8:35 -9:05 a.m. Only students eating breakfast will be allowed in the building before 8:55 a.m. Students entering the building before 8:55 a.m. should not go to their locker or classroom first but should go straight to the cafeteria where breakfast is served and supervision is provided. At 8:55 a.m., students will be dismissed to their classrooms. After the 9:05 a.m. tardy bell, elementary students can check into the office and get a breakfast pass for a grab-and-go cold breakfast. 

    Breakfast cost for all K-6th graders at Hillside will be FREE this year thanks to a grant obtained for some WDMCS schools.

    Lunch

    Students can choose between a hot lunch option (changes daily), a cold lunch option, and a yogurt/granola and string cheese entree kit. Students can also choose a hot vegetable, cold fruits and vegetables, and their choice of milk (skim, skim chocolate, or 1%). Students will pick the meal they would like as they go through the line (no preordering). Students bringing lunch from home can supplement their meal with fruits, veggies, and milk (at least three items) from the cafeteria line.

    Eating Lunch with Students
    Families are invited to eat lunch with their child at school a few times throughout the school year. You may bring a sack lunch or pay for your lunch as you go through the lunch line using your child’s nutrition account or in cash with exact change or small bills. Please call the school office by 9:15 a.m. on the morning you will be joining us for lunch so you can be included in our daily lunch count. If we receive a higher number of requests in a single day, we may limit the number of families that can eat lunch at school that day.
     
    For a special occasion, such as a child’s birthday, we invite you to bring lunch from a restaurant for you and/or your child. However, we will find an area in the building or on school grounds separate from the lunchroom for you to eat. Families are welcome to take their child out for lunch during their specific lunch/recess time if they wish.
