Mornings can be really crazy…the alarm doesn’t go off…the kids don’t want to get up…there’s no time to eat breakfast before the bus comes…or they’re just not ready to eat. Or maybe your teenager grabs a can of soda and a candy bar on the way to school. If this sounds like your house, we have good news for you!

Breakfast is served at your school! School Breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class. Breakfast has vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body.

Breakfast is affordable, too. If you qualify for free and reduced price meals, you also qualify for the breakfast program, with no additional paperwork! You can’t find a healthy breakfast at such a low cost anywhere else.

Charging to Accounts: Effective September 6, 2016

The district will permit a charge allowance, per student account, up to -$12.00. Any account with a balance of -$12.00 (and above) will be flagged by the Food Service Director in the district’s Meal Magic POS system and an alternative meal will be offered. The alternative meal incurs a fee and will be added to the balance on the account. 

No "extras" (bottled water, Smart Snack, extra entree) will be available for purchase until the negative balance has been satisfied. 

A letter or phone call to the household indicating this balance will be initiated by the Food Service Director for immediate payment. Please utilize the online tools or call the food service office to regularly monitor your student's account balance. 

All balances must be paid prior to the end of each school year.

District Wellness Policy

As required by law, the Board of Education establishes the following wellness policy for the Dundee Community Schools School District.

The Board recognizes that good nutrition and regular physical activity affect the health and well-being of the District's students. Furthermore, research concludes that there is a positive correlation between a student's health and well-being and his/her ability to learn. Moreover, schools can play an important role in the developmental process by which students establish their health and nutrition habits by providing nutritious meals and snacks through the schools' meal programs, by supporting the development of good eating habits, and by promoting increased physical activity both in and out of school.

The Board, however, believes this effort to support the students' development of healthy behaviors and habits with regard to eating and exercise cannot be accomplished by the schools alone. It will be necessary for not only the staff, but also parents and the public at large to be involved in a community-wide effort to promote, support, and model such healthy behaviors and habits.

For a complete viewing of the district’s wellness policy, please visit the Dundee Community Schools website homepage, select the “Departments” tab, access the “Board of Education” page, select “Board Polices” and search for “8510 – Wellness” (upper left hand corner).
