It is incredibly important that our students eat healthy meals to be fueled for the day! Countless studies show that with better nutrition, students are better able to learn, have fewer absences, have behavioral improvements, and achieve more academically.
Our daily brunch and lunch are provided by The LunchMaster, which follows the strict regulations of the National School Lunch Program.
Be sure to fill out your Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) and Scholarship forms each new school year!
Meal payments are accepted by cash or check (made out to Ceiba Public Schools) at the main office.
Please find our non-discrimination statement here.
All Ceiba families will be asked to complete a meal eligibility application every year. Families can find assistance with applying for free or reduced price school meals by contacting the Front Office Manager.
For families who don’t qualify for free and reduced price school meals, Ceiba charges meals at the time of service and sends invoices homes to families at the beginning of each quarter. Payment for balances is expected by the end of the month and can be made by check or check at the front office. Ceiba strongly encourages families to prepay for their children’s meals.
While Ceiba will continue to serve meals to students with delinquent meal charges, progress reports, transcripts, and diplomas can be withheld until balances are fully paid.
During Orientation at the beginning of the School Year, families are asked to fill out a Free and Reduced Priced Lunch application. The forms, while provided on-site, may be accessed below
