• Nutrition

    The Valley School District recognizes the important connection between a healthy diet and student's ability to learn effectively and achieve high standards in school. We make every effort to serve quality meals and show students that we care. A hungry student has difficulty learning. Help your child do better in school by making sure they eat a healthy breakfast and lunch! The Valley School District is committed to providing all students with all the tools they need to succeed – this includes nutritious meals that everyone can enjoy together.

    The National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for enrolled students is a great benefit, and we encourage you to apply for Free & Reduced Price Meals at any time, especially if your home situation or income has changed. We strongly encourage all families to submit a Meal Application. Funding streams that rely on Free & Reduced Price Meals data could be impacted; every eligible application form that is not submitted means lost resources for our schools.

    Due to the public health emergency, Valley School District is utilizing a USDA option to offer meals each school day at no charge to all students during the 2021-22 school term. Adults will be charged standard fees for meals.
