One of the most important ways in which we can help our children perform better in their classrooms is to provide them with the nutrition necessary for the healthy growth of their minds and bodies.
The Gloversville Enlarged Central School District serves free meals to all students, regardless of their income status, through the Community Eligibility Provision.
Breakfast is served daily from 7:20-7:45 a.m. at the high school, 7:30-7:55 a.m. at the middle school and 8:25-8:55 a.m. at the elementary schools. Lunch periods vary with students’ schedules.
When there is a two-hour delay, no breakfast is served.
Menus are posted to this page at the start of each month during the school year.
Although students receive breakfast and lunch free of charge, they may purchase additional à la carte food. Students may use cash to purchase such items or parents can make use of the MySchoolBucks system.
MySchoolBucks is a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into a students school meal account at any time and/or to print out a copy of their child’s purchase history. Create an account or make a payment here: MySchoolBucks website.
Checks also accepted
If you choose not to take advantage of MySchoolBucks, parents and/or guardians may continue to make advance payments via check. Checks should be made payable to the Gloversville School Lunch Fund. Please write your child’s full name on the check and send the check in with your child to school.
A note about homemade treats
We would to remind teachers and parents that state health codes prohibit homemade foods in classrooms. The policy, which has been enforced in Gloversville since 2007, is not meant to reduce the joy and celebrations of students; it’s simply meant to keep them healthy. We simply can’t ensure the safety of food when we have no way of monitoring the kitchen it comes from. There are too many unknowns out there and that is why the state makes these policies and why we enforce them.
