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.
Refreshed 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 - For our incoming 7th graders, you will see many new opportunities to purchase our ala carte offerings. These extras include items, such as bottled water, or other flavored waters and beverages & healthy snacks, and are not included in the regular price meal. A price list will be posted for easy viewing. Also, they will have different “stations” that they may choose their lunch from. On any given day, there are as many as 5-6 different lunch options, and all are available to all lunch status(free/reduced/paid). Don’t forget about our Universal/Free Breakfast program offered everyday to all students, in the café. We hope you are as excited to “go to lunch” and breakfast, we are to have you.
Meal Pricing - There has been a small increase in the price of school lunch at Coleman Schools for the 2017-18 school year. Elementary full pay lunch meal price is $2.50, and $2.75 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. 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. We will be drawing for these prizes by mid October 2017. Any student not turning in an application by October 16, 2017, will return to full pay status on October 17, 2017!!! (Applies to any student with previous year benefits) Please contact us with any concerns or questions!!
