School Breakfast and Lunch Program Information 2020-2021

 

Art & Science Academy is once again partnering with Lancer Dining Services to provide students with nutritious, catered breakfasts and lunches. Lunch options consist of a daily special, an alternate choice (sandwich or wrap), vegetarian, or gluten free. You can visit http://dining.lancerhospitality.com/ for more information regarding Lancer Dining Services.

 

Meal prices are as follows: breakfast is $2.00, lunch is $3.80, and no charge for students approved for free or reduced meals.  Each meal includes choice of one milk (1% white, or chocolate skim).  All kindergarten students are automatically eligible for free breakfasts.  Applications for Educational Benefits are available at Art & Science Academy or here.

 

As in the past, school meals are ordered a month in advance.  This year online ordering will be available from the 16th through the 20th of each month, starting in August for September meals. All ordering must be completed online at www.boonli.com. Information on setting up a boonli account is on the back of this sheet. If you have forgotten your boonli account log in information, please do not create a new account and contact Lauri McKinnon at lauri.mckinnon@asa.k12.mn.us or 763.444.0342 for your login credentials.  You may stop in to Art and Science Academy to place an order online if needed.

 

Extra milks are 55 cents each and must be paid for with cash on day of purchase or ordered in advance through boonli. All students will have access to a drinking fountain during breakfast and lunch periods.

 

If your child needs an emergency meal (some examples are a forgotten lunch or did not eat breakfast at home), one will be provided, and an invoice will be emailed or sent home. Prices for emergency meals are the same as a regular meal.  A sample emergency lunch could be a cheese sandwich, vegetable, fruit, and milk choice. A sample emergency breakfast could consist of cereal, cheese stick, apple, and milk choice.

 

ASA, in collaboration with Lancer Dining Services, will make reasonable substitutions to meals on a case-by-case basis for children who are considered to have a disability that restricts their diet. To make such a request, a parent or guardian must submit a Special Diet Statement that is completed by a licensed physician, physician assistant, or an advanced practice registered nurse, such as a certified nurse practitioner. Updates to this form are only required when a child’s needs change.  Visit here or Art & Science Academy for a Special Diet Statement form.
