Lexington Public Schools serves high quality school lunch and breakfast at a very reasonable price. We believe that your child's health and nutrition is a top priority. Our suggestion is that you estimate the amount of your child's food service and send payment on a monthly basis, or immediately after each payday, whichever is more convenient for you. Keeping an adequate balance in your child's account assures continuing food service for your child.
For your convenience, you can check your child's lunch balance online. Login instructions are:
- Go to PowerSchool parent login page
- Input user name and password. Contact your child's school if you need these.
- Click on the $ on the menu at the top of the screen.
If you want e-mail notification for low balances, please click on the e-mail notification icon and select the balance alert box.
Welcome back to the 2012-13 school year. We are excited about some new changes in the school lunch program. New Federal guidelines are focusing on the students making choices in healthy eating options.
The focus this year is on fruits, vegetables and whole grains to promote a healthier lifestyle. The students will be encouraged to try new fruits and vegetables. Half of a student's tray should be filled with fruits and vegetables and the other half grains, meat, and dairy.
We offer 5 different food items for lunch: fruits, vegetables, grains, meat or meat alternate and dairy. The Nebraska School Nutrition requires each student to take a minimum of 3 different items to qualify as a meal. Students who do not have at least 3 different food items on their tray will be required to go back and choose something else to become a meal.
The students will be offered choices of fruits and vegetables this year. Students may combine their fruits and vegetables, but will be required to have one half cup or more on their tray.
We would like you to assist us in explaining these changes to your child(ren) prior to the first day of school. This will help the students to be familiar with the procedure before they go through the lunch line.
We would like to thank you for your support in making the lunch program a success for your child. If you ever have questions, please don't hesitate to give the foodservice a call about your concerns.
