School Lunch

 

St. Vrain Community Montessori School offers school lunch through the St. Vrain Valley School District’s Department of Nutrition Services.

 

When available, these meals are prepared with in-season local organic fruits and vegetables and delivered the very same day. Vegetarian options are available by request Nutrition and allergy information, as well as carbohydrate counts for each meal, are available online on the SVVSD Nutrition Services site.

Beginning Wednesday, September 1, 2021 the St. Vrain Valley School District will provide free lunch for all SVVSD students, including SVCMS families who place an order in advance. Instructions for placing an order for school lunch are available here.

Student ID Numbers will be needed to order lunch.  Returning parents,  your student’s Student ID number can be found in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.   Parents who are new and have not yet used the parent portal,  you may call the school office at 303.682.4339 or email office@svcmontessori.org to request your student’s ID number.
 

Free/Reduced Lunch (FRL)

While School Lunch is available for free for ALL SVCMS students who order it in advance, SVVSD still encourages families to apply for FRL if they fall within the income requirements. This is to inform correct projections for next year, and because FRL families have reduced fees.

Free and reduced meals are available to students whose families qualify. An application must be submitted by the parent or guardian to the SVVSD’s Department of Nutrition Services in order to qualify for either free or reduced price meals any time during the school year.

 

This application is available online, in the front office at SVCMS, or at the Nutrition Services Office at 2929 Clover Basin Drive in Longmont, CO 80503.

 

Federal guidelines require a new application each year and parent/guardians must meet income requirements for their children to be eligible. Last year’s status will not carry over to the current school year. Until your application is approved, please send a sack lunch with your child each day.
