TK/K Lunch Bunch Program


    Dear Families of Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten Students,


    Starting on Monday, August 26, 2019, Mountain Avenue will offer Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten students the opportunity to eat lunch in the cafeteria after dismissal. Students may bring a lunch from home or purchase one in the cafeteria. Students are not permitted to bring anything in a glass container, candy or soda pop. This is in addition to the Kindergartners who stay for EEELP child care.  A lunch bunch form is available in the main office.  They are also sent home in August.  


    Our cafeteria offers a wide variety of lunch sections: entree, fruit, vegetable, and milk.  You can purchase these meals by prepaying by putting money into your student's meal account.  This is similar to a debit card for meals. 


    Parents may pay for cafeteria lunches in advance online through Lunch is $2.75. The cafeteria menu is posted in each classroom and is also available on our website.


    There is an option to apply for free or reduced meals. You can either apply online or complete a lunch application form, which is included in the first day school packet.


    If your child has food allergies, or requires a vegetarian option, please be sure to note that below and notify the cafeteria.  


    Students with a completed permission slip will be escorted to the lunch area and supervised by the Yard Duty Assistants. Students will eat at the lunch benches and will then be taken to the traffic lane area for dismissal at 1:00 pm. Please be sure to pick up your student on time.  If you are interested in participating in the Lunch Bunch program, please complete the attached form and return to your child's teacher.  


    If you have any additional questions regarding school lunch program, please contact Mrs. Jennifer Chin Gonzales, Director, Nutrition Services ​at (818) 552-2677.
