Lunch Program

Overview

Lunch Program

Country Day partners with local restaurants to provide nutritious school lunches for our students.

Lunch program costs are automatically added to monthly student bills. Lunch orders are not charged on days falling on school observed holidays and breaks, teacher workdays, teacher conference days, or field trips, even if a menu item has been selected on the order form. In order to keep pricing reasonably affordable, parents and families are encouraged to send their student to school with water or a drink. 

All lunch program selections are $7.60 for Middle and High School students.  Lower School lunches are $7.10. 

Questions about the lunch program or order forms should be directed to lunch@saccds.org

Lunch Menu and Ordering

When you select your menu item for Monday that will be your standing order for each Monday for the month. Unfortunately, we can not place orders for individual weeks or single days. The school will rotate menu items periodically to offer more variety but will continue with high demand items. 

Due to our commitments with our restaurant partners, we are unable to make short notice changes to selected menus.  We understand student sick days are unavoidable, but we are obligated to honor existing orders with our vendors. However, if you know your child will not need lunches for a week, please let us know in advance and we will work on your behalf to adjust our order. 

COVID-19 Changes to Lunch Service

Students who use optional lunch service will have their lunches delivered to designated classrooms/areas. All lunch items ordered will come individually packaged.

This includes:

  • Salads: If a meal comes with a salad, it will be in its own package.
  • Pizza: Lower school students will receive a personal size pizza in an unopened box. Middle and high school students will receive a small size pizza in an unopened box.
  • Fruit: If a meal usually comes with whole fruit, pre-packaged cups of applesauce will be provided instead.
  • Utensils: Each student who orders lunch with receive fork, knife, spoon and napkin in an individually wrapped package.

Please note that drinks are not provided as part of lunch service and drinking fountains will not be available. Please plan to send your child with their own drinks and/or water bottle. On-campus water bottle refill stations are available.
