School Lunch Costs
The cost for school lunch at SVCMS is $3.00 per day for Kindergarten through 8th year. Lunch includes 1% white milk, skim chocolate milk, or water, and almond milk can be purchased for an additional $1.00. Almond milk will be purchased directly from SVCMS.
Please note that there is an additional fee to cover transportation charges. These fees will be billed directly by SVCMS two times a year. This transportation fee is $0.50 for full pay students, $0.40 for reduced lunch students and free for free lunch students.
Student account balances (maintained by the SVVSD’s school payment solutions) will be checked once a week, and if there are insufficient funds to pay for the lunches ordered, you will receive a phone call notification that your student account will not cover future lunches per St. Vrain Valley School District (SVVSD) protocols.
If you are unable to pay the charges owed, you must send a lunch from home. Once the charge has been paid, the student may resume buying lunch. Please note that the transportation/composting fees are reduced or waived for families who qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch.
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.
In accordance with Health Hungry Free Kids legislation, the Department of Nutritional Services doubled fruits and vegetable servings beginning in 2012.
