School Lunches

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) claims that most children attend school for at least six hours of the day. Therefore, they consume as much as half of their daily calories needs while they are at school. It has been documented that kids who eat healthy foods while at school are better able to focus their attention in the classroom and learn. ACSD #1 recognizes the important role of nutrition for our young learners and is thus committed to the health and well-being of our students. ACSD #1 offers healthy breakfast and lunch options on all school days. Parents/Guardians are encouraged to apply for free and reduced price meal programs.
