All District 67 students staying for lunch eat in the school lunchroom under supervision. Students may bring their lunch from home or purchase a lunch. The lunch program begins on the first full day of school and is in operation each full day school is in session. Menus are shared with parents in their school newsletters and posted online.
Elementary students may order the meal listed on their monthly school menu. Deer Path Middle School students can select either the meal listed on their monthly school menu, or the "a la carte" selections. The meal listed on the menu includes:
- Elementary Schools: Daily Special/Entree or Cold Sandwich or Grab-and-go Salad
- DPM: Daily Special/Entree or Cold Sandwich or Cheeseburger or Chicken Sandwich or Grab-and-go Salad
- All: Seasonal Fruit and Vegetable
- All: Milk or 8 oz. Water
Lake Forest School District 67 and Quest Food Services are pleased to provide our families a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account (www.myschoolbucks.com). This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance, and print out a copy of your child’s eating history report. The history report will show you all dates and times that your child has purchased a lunch within the past thirty days. Here is a link to show how to add money, set up low balance alerts and add auto replenish.
Students in the elementary schools will make their lunch selection in homeroom each morning. At lunch, each student will locate their student ID in the cafeteria and the cashier will debit their account after service.
Deer Path Middle School students will swipe their student ID at the lunch line, the cashier will verify the student’s picture and the account will be debited. We are encouraging all middle school students to be responsible with their IDs, but if one is forgotten or lost, ID numbers and names can be searched on the computerized Point of Sale (POS) system to ensure the student has lunch for that day. Replacement IDs can be issued in the middle school office – the first replacement is free but subsequent ones will cost $5 each.
Please note there are no fried items, and most of our breads, tortillas and pizza crusts are whole wheat and whole grain. Nut products including nut oils are not used due to allergy concerns. The menu follows the guidelines for portion sizes and amounts of grains, proteins, and fats for each age level as suggested by the National School Lunch Program.
The District's "charge" system will be implemented when your student's account is overdrawn at Deer Path. If your student’s account is overdrawn, they will not be allowed to purchase a la carte items such as beverages, chips and snacks. We will allow students to purchase a meal regardless of balance (this is for elementary and middle school). We suggest you set up auto payments and/or low balance alerts so your account does not go negative.
