St. Vrain Community Montessori School offers school lunch through the St. Vrain Valley School District’s Department of Nutrition Services. All students are eligible to receive one free lunch each school day through Colorado Department of Education's Healthy School Meals for All program.
When available, district lunches are prepared with in-season, local organic fruits and vegetables and delivered the very same day. Nutrition and allergy information, as well as carbohydrate counts for each meal, are available online on the SVVSD Nutrition Services site.
Families can order school lunches through Boonli at https://express.boonli.com/login. The deadline to order lunch is 11:59 p.m. on Thursday of the week prior. Instructions can be found 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 email@example.com to request your student’s ID number.
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, $0.25 for reduced lunch students and free for free lunch students.
Free/Reduced Lunch (FRL)
SVCMS participates in the federal Free/Reduced Lunch program. While all students receive free lunch, it is still important for families to apply if they believe they would qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Families who qualify receive several benefits including reduced fees at SVCMS. An application must be submitted by the parent or guardian to the SVVSD’s Department of Nutrition Services in order to qualify 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. Applications are accepted continuously throughout the school year; families may apply or re-apply at any time. To apply, visit this link or pick up a paper form in the school office.
In accordance with Health Hungry Free Kids legislation, the Department of Nutritional Services doubled fruits and vegetable servings beginning in 2012.
