Welcome back!! This is such an exciting time for students and families, and as the beginning of the school year quickly approaches, we want to extend a warm welcome back to school and back to the café!! Coleman Schools and Chartwells K-12 Food Service Department are eager to welcome you and your student back to the school café with new flavors, events, and food and wellness education that will surely inspire a healthy and fun 2016-17 school year!!
New Menus - Coleman Schools and our food service staff have been hard at work to bring the foods you want to see. We are excited to offer you the freshest products, while continuing to commit to wide options and healthy choices.
Coleman Comet Café - Our staff has given our high school serving area a refreshed look for this school year. We hope you are as excited to “go to lunch” as we are to have you. Our new look offers many of your favorites while adding some new features, we are sure you’ll enjoy! Let us know what you think!!
Meal Pricing - There has been a small increase in the price of school lunch at Coleman Schools for the 2016-17 school year. Elementary full pay lunch meal price is $2.35, and $2.60 at secondary level. Reduced meal pricing stays at $.40 daily. Our “universal breakfast” (free) program remains the same, and is available to ALL students, as long as they choose a complete meal with all components. Many students have been taking advantage of this program and getting their day off in a nutritious way, ready for learning. Please talk with your student to make sure they participate in this wonderful program.
Coleman Schools Website Information - Don’t forget about the on line free & reduced applications, and the efunds site(to pay on line) found at colemanschools.net. Remember a new application must be sent each year, unless notified otherwise. You may also check your student’s history and balance by accessing the Meal Magic site found there as well. You will need your student’s ID number: most secondary students know this number, or call for that information to our Food Service Department, at 989-442-1997 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Free Gift Card!!! - Each family will get one entry for a chance to win a $50 gift card, (One per building) when a Free & Reduced application is correctly completed and returned to our school. Please complete the application even if you don’t believe you will qualify. The federal government uses the number of applications approved to determine Title 1 and other grant funding which, in turn, supports your child’s academics in the district. We will be drawing for these prizes before the end of September 2016.
Please contact us with any concerns or questions!!
