During In School Learning

School Lunches have really changed since parents were in school. VIsit this link to view the MPS School Lunch Menus. We are a Pre-Pack with Salad Bar location. http://nutritionservices.mpls.k12.mn.us

Breakfast is is FREE to all students and is available from 7:50 until 8:05 a.m. in the school cafeteria
Lunch in the cafeteria costs $2.40 per student per full meal. $2.50 if they only take an entree. Milk can be purchased for 50 cents. All meals must be prepaid.  Each student has his or her own meal account. 

For more information and to sign up for the online lunch payment program, visit School Cafe.

All students will recieve 20-30 minutes of lunchtime followed by 30 minutes of recess daily. Students go outside in a varitey of weather, so please make sure they have the appropriate clothing for the day.  If the weather or windchill is below zero, students will have inside recess.  

The cafeteria has a special table for students with allergies, but because Kenwood has several students with life-threatening anaphylactic conditions and many other students with sensitivity to particular foods, we all try to maintain a peanut-free building.  Please don’t send peanut butter or peanut products to school.

Kenwood has a Wellness Policy and no longer allows treats in the school.  No food items will be used in school as incentives, rewards, snacks, celebrations, birthday treats, etc.  There are two exceptions to this rule: 1) Kindergarteners will still get a snack (your child’s teacher will communicate with you about this); 2) teachers can decide to make an exception for a celebration that is a long-held Kenwood tradition.
