Nutrition & Menus
The Nutrition Services department provides carefully planned and well-balanced meals that appeal to younger appetites and undergo a nutritional analysis by a registered dietician. Meal service is available for residential and day students from Sunday evening through Friday afternoon. Day students receive breakfast and lunch and residential students receive breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Additionally, our team of friendly professionals teach students about nutrition in a variety of ways. We incorporate holidays, celebrations and special occasions, such as National School Breakfast Week, National School Lunch Week, and National Nutrition Month into our lessons. Our dining room serves as a learning environment where students are encouraged to practice skills and nutrition knowledge that they have been taught in instructional and residential programs.
All stakeholders are encouraged to give their input about the Wellness Policy and can request to be members of our Wellness Committee if interested. Stakeholders are school leadership, parents, students, education, nutrition service, physical education, health or related services, dietary, residential services, and the local community. The Committee meets quarterly.
