(Bread not available with every meal).  Fresh or canned fruit and vegetables are served every day with one baked dessert a week.

Parents and Students,

 

Welcome Back! Hope everyone had a great summer. We again had Summer Food Service which was timed along with Summer School. Thank you, to all who participated in our program.  Now that summer is nearing the end and we are preparing for another year full of fun, friends and learning.  We hope everyone participates in our National School Lunch and Breakfast Program.

 

Breakfast is served every day from 7:30 am to 8:20 am. This program requires us to serve students a healthy nutritious breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day: we all need to fuel our bodies to start the day off right. Our breakfast can help ease the stress of trying to feed your children before they leave for school by saving you time. It is also an affordable meal. We offer a variety of breakfast foods such as: cold cereals, oatmeal, muffins, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, toast pancakes, French toast, breakfast burritos, breakfast sandwiches, cheese, and breakfast meat. Fruit, juice and milk are served with every breakfast.

 

Lunch is served different times per age group.  Our lunch periods start at 10:55 am daily and our last group is served at 12:10 pm. We offer students two choices most days which enables students to have a personal choice. We participate in the “offer vs serve” method.  This means we offer five different food groups and students are required to choose at least three of the five. This method is helpful to reduce food waste. Under USDA laws students are required to take a fruit or vegetable choice. Is it helpful to go over the menu with you child and help them decide which meals are suited for them. The menus are available on the school website at wausaukee.k12.wi.us or in the school’s offices. Also menus are sent home bi-monthly with elementary students throughout the school year.

Please notify me and the school nurse if there are any allergies your child may have. If there are any questions or concerns involving the food service program, please feel free to contact me at (715) 856-5151 ext. 314 or email me at behnkej@wausaukee.k12.wi.us.  We encourage you to visit the school cafeteria! You are always welcome to join us to have lunch with your student. Meal tickets can be purchased at the District Office.

 

Thank you!
