School Lunch

Aspen View Academy contracts with Douglas County Nutrition Services to provide school lunch options for our families. Parents may load their MySchoolBucks account in advance with money to pay for student lunches. The application also allows parents to track student lunch spending and view individual lunch purchases.
 
In order for students to participate in the DCSD lunch program, parents must first create a lunch payment account for each student on MySchoolBucks. The account must be preloaded with money (a credit card is required). Once their lunch payment account set-up is complete, students may purchase a DCSD lunch on any school day. Students will need to know their six-digit DCSD Student Number. This can be found in your Infinite Campus parent account in the upper left corner next to the student picture.

LUNCH AND CAFETERIA GUIDELINES
Students who generally bring their lunch from home are still required to have a lunch account as a backup. If a student forgets to bring their lunch to school, they will be allowed to charge their school lunch to their account. In general, students are to use positive behavior and to treat others with R.E.S.P.E.C.T. while in the cafeteria. The following guidelines will help ensure an orderly lunch period:
  • All food and drink items are to be consumed in the cafeteria.
  • Students are responsible for cleaning their table and floor area before leaving the cafeteria. For spills, ask for assistance from lunchroom supervisors by raising a hand.
  • Parents may bring outside food and drink for their own children only. For the safety of children with food allergies, bringing in food for anyone other than your own children is strictly prohibited. 
  • Respect and politeness must be shown to all, including the cafeteria staff and parent volunteers.
  • Students must be patient while waiting to be served. A single file line must be maintained and no “cutting” is allowed.
  • Students must be seated at a table when eating. Once seated, there is to be no moving without permission.
  • Throwing food, ice, or other objects is not allowed. Running, excessive noise, “horse play” or other disruptive behavior is not allowed. Students should refrain from shouting across tables. Noise levels should remain reasonable.
  • Students must not share food with others due to allergy/safety concerns.
