Ridge Central Elementary School

Food Services

Students in kindergarten through fifth grade may either bring a lunch from home or order a school lunch from our lunch program.  All children in the District are eligible for free breakfast and lunch under the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).  The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) allows schools and local educational agencies (LEAs) located in low-income areas to provide free breakfast and lunch to all students.  Visit the USDA website for more details.

This year, the students do not need to complete a monthly order form as we have done in the past.  Instead, each morning the teachers check with the students to see who will need a school breakfast and/or lunch that day.  If you have any questions about the breakfast and lunch program, call Mrs. Higgins, lunchroom hostess, at 636-2001 extension 1022 or email her at khiggins@crsd1275.org.   

Milk may also be purchased separately for the cost of 35 cents.

Each child is issued a lunch card.  In the event that the card becomes damaged and unusable, the cost for the replacement of a lunch card will be $5.00.
