Nutrition Program

Healthy Students

TRCS values the health of our students. To that end we have adopted the Smart Snack policy. Snacks brought into share must meet the guidelines of: fruit, milk, vegetables, protein, or whole grain listed as one of the first ingredients.  

In addition, only snacks that are labeled “Two Bite” will be allowed for birthdays and celebrations.

Breakfast

Student breakfast is available for $2.25 daily at 7:45 a.m. Applications for the free and reduced-priced meals are sent home to each family with the first day packet, you can also pick them up throughout the year in the office. Applications may be submitted at any time during the school year. They will be processed in a timely manner; however, until an eligibility determination is made, and a letter is sent to the parents/guardians, the student is required to pay full price. Breakfasts are served on a prepaid basis, and parent/guardians must purchase any number of breakfasts in advance at TRCS’s office before or after school daily.

Menus are distributed at the end of each month.

Lunch

Student lunches are available in the cafeteria for $3.50. Applications for the free and reduced-priced meals are sent home to each family with the first day packet and may be picked up and turned in throughout the school year.  They will be processed in a timely manner; however, until an eligibility determination is made, and a letter is sent to the parents/guardians, the student is required to pay full price. Children participating in the National School Lunch Program will not be overtly identified by the use of any special means. Lunches are served on a prepaid basis, and parent/guardians must purchase lunches in advance in the office. Orders received after 9 a.m. on Tuesday will not count towards the upcoming week. In the event of a forgotten lunch your child will be able to call home. 

If your child forgets his/her lunch he/she will be able to call the first time this happens. After the first time they will be given a shelf stable lunch. 

Those who bring lunches from home may purchase milk for $.50.

Allergies

Food allergies can be life threatening. We know the risk of accidental exposure to foods can be reduced when we work with students, parents, and physicians to minimize risks and provide a safe educational environment for students with food related allergies. At TRCS we strive to be a Peanut Reduced/Food Allergy aware environment at school to ensure student safety. Individual classrooms having students with food allergies will be labeled on the classroom door. Teachers will provide additional information to keep students safe at Back to School Night.
