Talk to Us

Talk to Ustitle

You can reach your student's cafeteria by calling the school's front office.  Just ask to be transferred to the kitchen!  If we don't answer, leave us a message - we're always preparing our next delicious meal!
Does your student have feedback for us?  Encourage them to write a letter explaining what they like, what they don't like, and what they would do differently.  Address it to "Nutrition Services Department."  You can drop the letter off at the school front office, at the cafeteria, or mail it directly to the District Office.
