Hot Lunch Program
You must provide a lunch for your child every day through either our hot lunch program or by sending a lunch with your child from home. Sharing of food from lunches and snacks between students is NOT allowed per Miramonte policy, and parents should NOT offer food or snacks to other students.
Parents of children who have food allergies or special nutritional needs should document these needs with the Teacher and the Miramonte office prior to the first day of attendance and submit a FARE Food Allergy Plan Form.
The Monday – Thursday School Eatery service has been discontinued as of 10-1-2019. There simply weren't enough families utilizing the service to make it work. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you are still interested in having lunch delivered to your child, please look into other food delivery options that are available, such as Uber Eats, Doordash, and Grubhub. If you do decide to use one of these food delivery methods, make sure you give clear instructions that we are a school and that they need to bring it to the gate. We still continue to offer our weekly Friday hot lunch program.
Each Friday a different Miramonte classroom sponsors a hot lunch fundraiser. The proceeds from this lunch benefit the classroom and help pay for field trips, class activities, and enhancements to the curriculum. The menu and price are published in the Miramonte Mainspring - the school newsletter that is sent home every Monday (or the first school day of the week if Monday is a holiday) and can be accessed on the Miramonte website, click here. Beginning 9-10-2021, hot lunches will need to be paid for via pre-paid punch cards purchased in the office with cash, check, or credit card.
If you prefer to not utilize the hot lunch program, you need to send a lunch with your child every day:
- Each classroom has a microwave that can be used to RE-HEAT ONLY (limit 30 seconds, no full-length cooking times) student lunch items in microwave-safe containers from home.
- Please provide your child with all needed utensils, condiments, napkins, and reheating instructions.
- To minimize classroom interruption, lunches that are brought on campus after the school day begins are to be left with the Miramonte office staff who will make sure your child receives their lunch prior to lunchtime.
Food may be eaten only during lunch or snack breaks designated by the teacher or After School Care supervisor and consumed in designated areas only. We encourage parents to send lunches and snacks that are healthy and low in sugar. Snacks should consist of foods that do NOT need heating or any additional preparation. Gum is NOT allowed on campus as it causes difficult problems for the custodians, buildings, litter disposal, and health of everyone on campus.
There is NO lunch period and NO Hot Lunch Program on minimum days. If your student is remaining at school on a minimum day, please provide them with lunch. There may be a snack fundraiser sale scheduled on minimum days - please check the Mainspring and classroom newsletters for current information.
