Cafeteria Program 2019-2020
The cafeterias at Peru Central School District have wonderful breakfast and lunch programs. Breakfast is served in the Primary and Intermediate School from 8:50 AM—9:15 AM. Breakfast for Middle and High School students is available in the Sr High School Cafeteria at 7:00 AM and remains open. The cost of breakfast for the Primary and Intermediate School students is $1.55. The cost of breakfast for Middle and High School students is $1.90. The breakfast program is open to everyone and is a great way to start each day! Lunch is available to all students and cost $2.50 for the Primary and Intermediate School Students and $2.75 for Middle and High School students. A milk is included with each meal but it is also available for $0.70 purchased separately.
Meals and Milk-Students must select 3 of the 5 meal components offered and one of the items must be a fruit or vegetable, in order for their selections to qualify as a meal. If a student selects fewer than the required number or does not take a fruit or vegetable, then they are charged individually or a la carte for their items; therefore, a student who qualifies for free or reduce-priced meals but brings a lunch from home must pay full price for their milk. Milk cost $0.70 sold separately.
Every student automatically has their own personal cafeteria account. Primary and Intermediate School students tell the cashier their name to access their accounts. Middle and High School students enter a 4-digit PIN (personal identification number) to access their accounts. This PIN remains the same year after year and students may ask the cashier if they need reminding. Students may pay each day; however, prepaying is strongly encouraged.
