Lunch at CAOS

Families provide lunches for CAOS students each day, ensuring each child enjoys preferred foods that fuel their brains for the second half of the day. An 8 ounce carton of 1% white milk or water is provided, so sending drinks is not necessary. 

Each family is asked to send lunch in a reusable lunchbox with their child's name clearly marked on the outside for easy distribution. Lunchboxes are stored in refrigerators to ensure items remain. Space is available to store thermoses or other items that should not be refrigerated. Each day before lunch, staff members set out lunches at the table, open any tricky packaging and warm up items as needed.  Families are able to send lunch items that taste better warm, such as soups, macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, spaghettios and other children's favorites.   

If students forget their lunchbox, a sandwich, fruit, snack and milk are available for a $5 charge. 

Please let us know if you have any questions about lunch at CAOS.
