**Are required to have a Health form completed yearly.  If a student has a current health concern or food allergy the nurse will contact the parent for further information as needed.

LM will be a part of the National School Lunch & Breakfast programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the 2018-2019 school year.  

**All enrolled students of LM will receive a healthy breakfast & lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2018-2019 school year.  

**There will be a charge if your student takes an extra serving, a la carte items, or extra milk.

**A positive lunch balance must be maintained.  When the balance is at or below $3.00, a reminder will be sent home.  No extra servings, a la carte, or extra milk is allowed when the lunch balance is negative.
