Caféteria News

This is the new theme for Hay Springs School Café teria.  We are not just a lunchroom anymore.  We begin our day with Breakfast beginning at 7:30 a.m..   This year our Middle School/High School students can select from three lunch choices.  A hot serve main meal, peanut butter & jelly sandwich or a cold meal that is complete with all components in its own container.  Along with that we will be offering an expanded salad bar selection. Our day ends providing food choices to students after school.  Listed below are a few other things that students can expect to see this coming school year.

Menus:  We plan to solicit student input into the menu selection.  Our plan is to get feedback from students and adjust our menus to foods students prefer.

Salad Bar:  Our Food Service Program received a $5000 award last year for the expansion of our breakfast program.  These funds were used to purchase a new refrigerated Salad Bar.  With the new salad bar students will have an expanded selection of fresh fruits and vegetables.

After School Cafeteria Sales: This year students can stop by the lunchroom until 4:30 p.m. and purchase salads, sandwiches, fruit, etc.  This will provide students with healthy food to get them through the after school activities and home for supper.  Students can pay cash or charge to their lunch account.

Fruit and Vegetable Program:  We were approved this year to offer a fruit and vegetable educational program to our elementary students.  This program provides students the opportunity to taste new foods and learn about them.

After School Snack:  New this school year we will provide students attending a remedial or academic program an after school snack.  This healthy snack will be provided at no charge to the student.

These are very exciting changes and additions for our Hay Springs School Café teria!  Our plan is to provide all students proper nutrition from Breakfast to After School Snacks.  We encourage parents to come to school and eat lunch with their children and experience the outstanding nutritional opportunities.
