Students, including Kindergartners, may buy breakfast for $1.00 and lunch for $1.50. Students eligible for free or reduced meals may receive meals free of charge or at a reduced price of $.30 for breakfast and $.40 for lunch.

The cafeteria is open on all school days, including minimum days. Breakfast is offered in the cafeteria each morning starting at 7:45 AM. Each student is issued a meal card that will be debited each time the child eats breakfast or lunch. Students who use their cards will receive lunch, even if their lunch accounts have a negative balance and parents are responsible for the cost. Prepayments for at least 5 meals are encouraged.  Payments may be made in the cafeteria, in the school office, or online (see below in Online Services). Checks should be made payable to Cafeteria Account, CVESD. Parents and family members are welcome to come and buy at lunch to share a special day with your child.
