Lisbon School Nutrition Program Information:

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning students of Lisbon School Department. The Nutrition Staff and I are looking forward to a fun and exciting year ahead!

What you need to know about the Lisbon Nutrition Program:

 

  • We offer breakfast, lunch, and individual milk options for your student
  • Full pay students- Breakfast (K-8) $1.50, (9-12) $1.75
  • Full pay students- Lunch (K-8) $3.00, (9-12) $3.25
  • Milk & juice- as part of a reimbursable meal is included in the price. If chosen individually regardless of payment status the price is $.50.
  • Lisbon High offers Ala Carte menu items for purchase. Prices range from $.50- 2.50. 
  • Please fill out the Free and Reduced Price Meal Application (light blue sheet).

**You have the opportunity to fill out the application online. This is completely secure & confidential. Please visit https://www.nlappscloud.com/ to fill out the form. You do not need to do both.

  • A new form MUST be completed every year unless you have received a letter from the nutrition department stating that your student is part of the Direct Certification list as provided by the State of Maine.  Only one form per household is needed. Please be sure to include all of your students in the Lisbon School Department (regardless of which school they attend) on your form.
    • If your student had free or reduced priced lunch last school year their status will stay the same until the 30th operating day of school. A new form must be filled out to stay current. If no form is received by the 30th operating day, the students status will automatically change to paid.
  • Money can be deposited onto your students lunch account via cash or check (preferred) to be turned into a kitchen staff member or front office. It is encouraged to view & manage your students lunch account via www.myschoolbucks.com. You will need their individual ID to create their account which can be obtained by contacting the nutrition office. Money can be deposited online and low-balance alerts can be set up via this web site.
  • Your students account works like a debit card as opposed to a credit card. Money must be on the account to receive a meal. Your student is permitted to charge a maximum of $10. Please be certain that your students account remains in the positive. This is the responsibility of the parent or guardian not the school. Notifications of delinquent accounts will be sent home on a regular basis.
  • As part of the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act, a student is required to choose ½ cup of fruit or vegetable component as part of a reimbursable meal. Under Offer VS. Serve a student must take 3 of the 5 components offered at lunch. These components include: Protein, Grain, Fruit, Vegetable, and Milk.

Please feel free to contact me with any and all questions pertaining to the Lisbon Nutrition Program including filling out the Free & Reduced Meal Application form, your students account balance or anything else I can be of service with. Email: aleavitt@lisbonschoolsme.org. Phone: 353-3044.
