POLICY FOR SCHOOL LUNCH AND BREAKFAST

Breakfast will be offered daily at a cost of $1.50. Students may purchase their lunch or bring lunches from home and purchase milk. The District provides a hot lunch program on a daily basis. Student price for hot lunch/milk is $2.80  and milk only is $.50. The cost to replace an I.D. card is $3.00 for the first card, $5.00 for the second card and $10 for any subsequent cards. Students will pay for meals through a debit card system. Each family may charge up to $20, regardless of how many students attend District 165. When a student has charged over the limit, a student may request cereal at cost for a limited 3 purchases after they have hit their limit your child should bring their own lunch and drink. 

District 165 utilizes a family breakfast/lunch account system. Family members, regardless of the building the student attends, will share one account. MCMS, Grant, and Locust students will use ID cards to access their family account. MCMS and Grant students may also manually enter their student ID number. We will notify students when funds are running low. Families undergoing severe financial hardship may obtain an application for free and reduced student lunches by calling the school office and by filling out the appropriate forms. We highly recommend that all families in the district fill out lunch application each school year.  A new form must be completed each school year. We are not connected to the Marengo Community High School; therefore a form must be completed for each school, each year.

If you are in need of the lunch application on paper you must notify your child's school to have one sent home with your child.

Mission Statement: District #165's mission is to form a community partnership dedicated to providing a solid educational foundation that enables students to become confident, self-sufficient and productive citizens. Students shall have the academic and technological opportunities to achieve their full potential in a nurturing environment.
