Saint Killian Parish School has a dedicated cafeteria space where students can either bring lunch or purchase a school lunch; those bringing lunch can purchase milk separately.

Both daily lunch staff and parent volunteers help to monitor our children during their lunch and recess times. If you are able to occasionally volunteer from 10:30 -1:30 please contact Mary Jo Iachini - we value our volunteers!

Student Lunch Money - Myschoolbucks.com
Children planning to purchase cafeteria lunches will need funds deposited into their myschoolbucks.com account - a secure, family friendly system for online school meal prepayments. Login credentials are issued to families in August prior to the beginning of the school year. If you have any problems, please contact the cafeteria.

Snack Guidelines:

  • Snacks Brought in for Your Child Only
    You may send in food items listed on the Nut-Checked Snack List, sent in unopened, original package or, food items listed on the Nut-Checked Snack List, sent in a baggie with a note identifying that the food item is nut-checked.

  • Preschool Snacks
    Preschoolers enjoy a midmorning and mid afternoon snack during the school day. Since our classrooms are nut restricted, we ask you only bring in items off the Approved "Nut-Checked" Snack List. These snacks should be brought to school in their original, unopened packaging. Please feel free to bring whatever you like following these guidelines, but we encourage parents to seek a variety in the area of fruits and vegetables and to avoid sugar treats.

  • Birthday Treats
    Please check with your child’s teacher before sending in any birthday treats. The classrooms are nut restricted and therefore homemade items are not permitted. The teachers have many alternatives to suggest for birthday treats so please be so kind as to check with them before sending in any birthday treats.

  • When purchasing food for lunches or snacks, please adhere to the following rules of thumb:
    • Always read each ingredient and allergen statement before purchasing because product ingredients and packaging may change.
    • A product that “may contain traces of nuts,” or is “made on shared equipment,” or is “made in a facility that processes nuts” is NOT safe.

  • Approved "Nut-Checked" Snack List

We have had several questions regarding what food can be brought into school and if it can be sent in baggies. Please use the following table as a quick reference when packing snacks or lunch.

I AM PACKING PLEASE SEND IN
     
A snack to be eaten in the classroom by my child ONLY  

Food items listed on the Nut-Checked Snack List, sent in unopened, original package or, food items listed on the Nut-Checked Snack List, sent in a baggie, please send a note identifying that the food item is nut-checked.

     
Snacks to be eaten in the classroom by all the children   Food items listed on the Nut-checked Snack List, sent in unopened, original packages OR if the snack is fresh fruit or vegetables, always use thoroughly cleaned kitchen utensils and equipment (knives, cutting boards, serving containers, etc.) to wash and prepare the snack.
     
Lunch to be eaten in the cafeteria by my child   Any food item, store-bought or homemade, please attach a label if the lunch does or does not contain nuts.
     
Lunch to be eaten somewhere other than the classroom by my child (“Brown Bag Day”)   Any food item, store-bought or homemade, that is Nut-checked, please attach a label that the lunch is “Nut-checked.”

Cafeteria Parent Volunteer Program
It is recommended that each K – 7 family with clearances volunteer in the cafeteria ONE (1) day each school year. Two parent volunteers are scheduled each day, in addition to one SKPS teacher.

A monthly schedule is posted on the website after preapproval from the parents scheduled.

What to Do if You Are Scheduled for Lunch Duty
Please plan to arrive in the cafeteria by 10:30am to support the four lunch periods. If you are new to the cafeteria, someone will explain the details to you when you arrive. A summary of a cafeteria volunteer’s roles and responsibilities are detailed in the following document: Cafeteria Monitor Guidelines. Cafeteria duty concludes at 1:00pm.

What to Do if You Cannot Work Your Assigned Duty
In the event you have signed up for a day and are unable to volunteer, we ask that you try to switch with another scheduled parent (or parent with clearances). We do have cafeteria substitutes available should you not able to work out a switch with another parent. However, things go smoothly when we have as much advance notice as possible.

How to be Added to the Cafeteria Schedule
Simply contact Mary Jo Iachini at the front desk, she handles the schedules, switches, and substitutes. Please note that you must have clearances to volunteer in any capacity at our school.

It is due to the cooperation of all the families at Saint Kilian Parish School that we have such a wonderful lunch program for our children. Thanks to all parents, students, and staff!
