APS Meal Prices 2016-2017


Our school breakfast and lunch  program is available to all students. Applications for free/reduced meals are available in the school office. Students are also permitted to bring lunches from home and purchase milk or juice.

Students with unique dietary needs including milk allergies due to health problems are required to provide a letter from their physician indicating specific needs. When possible, Nutrition Services will make a reasonable effort to provide for these needs.

Parents and students are allowed to purchase multiple daily lunches. Personal checks should be made payable to Dalton Elementary and should indicate the child’s name and room number. If there is a problem with insufficient funds, we will ask that all payments be made in cash. Please have your child pay for breakfast and lunches before school between 7:35 a.m. – 7:50 a.m. in the cafeteria. Also, breakfast is served beginning at 7:35 a.m. each morning.

Your child’s hand is stamped when he/she has used all the money in his/her lunch account. A fruit or vegetable and a drink are provided if the parent does not provide money on that day or subsequent days. Students are not allowed to charge meals. Prices are as follows:
