We are pleased to announce that due to recent legislation, Solana Beach School District will be providing all students daily breakfast and lunch at no charge for the 2021-22 school year. There is no longer a need to fund lunch accounts or to submit Free/Reduced Meal Applications.
The Child Nutrition Services team remains committed to offering freshly-prepared and healthy meal options to all students. Meals include entree, fresh fruits and vegetables, and milk. Menus can be found on the District’s website.
Breakfast Service will be available during the Morning Recess period and Lunch Service during scheduled lunch time. All students are encouraged to participate.
Students in ImmersiveEDU will have the opportunity to pick up meals from the school kitchens by making arrangements with the kitchen managers.
Please check the school website for the daily schedule.
