About lunch

It has been noticed (by students as well as staff) that some parents are bringing fast food lunches to school for their children. We would like to strongly discourage this practice & encourage you to either have your child bring a healthy lunch packed from home or to buy the school lunch. Well-balanced meals are offered in our cafeteria under the Federal School Lunch Act. If you pack a lunch from home for your child please make sure it includes healthy foods such as a sandwich, fruit, juice or milk, yogurt, etc. Here at Jennie Dean we are trying to encourage healthy habits for our students, including eating well-balanced, healthy meals. We would greatly appreciate your cooperation with this. Let's all help our children develop healthy habits for life!
