Lunch & Nutrition

We are a nut-free school.

We have students in all grades who suffer from severe nut allergies. Please do not send foods or snacks with nuts or nut products. 

Please refer to our anaphylaxis emergency plan





Lunch Fees

All elementary and junior high students who stay at school for lunch will be required to pay a mandatory lunch fee in order to cover the costs of providing lunchroom supervision and properly equipping and supplying custodial requirements. Further information is provided in a letter to parents.


Lunch Rules

Students should abide by the following rules:

Treat the lunchroom supervisors with respect - unruly students will be directed to school administration and may have their lunchroom and recess privileges removed and be moved to an alternate location.
Clean up after themselves - students should not rely on custodians and lunch monitors to do their cleaning.
Bring litterless lunches - As part of Johnny Bright’s Comprehensive School Health Initiatives, we are making an effort to reduce waste, focus on healthy eating and reduce unnecessary work.  Students are being asked to bring  “Litterless Lunches” to school. For more information, please see our school’s Litterless Lunch Initiative.
